Allan V. Wexler Scholarship - The Wexler Scholarship, first awarded in June 2007 has been an ongoing tribute to the late Dr. Allan V. Wexler, in honor of his lifetime of service to both the profession of Optometry and to the Georgia Optometric Association. We are very proud to continue his legacy by awarding this scholarship in his name to the very bright, up and coming future optometrists. It is also an honor that Mrs. Gail Wexler and the Wexler Family continue to take a part by reviewing all the applications and give their input on each of the candidates. The recipient of the scholarship is awarded $1,500 from the Georgia Optometric Foundation and it will be presented at the GOA Fall Education Conference taking place at the UGA Hotel and Conference Center in Athens, GA the weekend of October 23-25, 2015."
