Laura Kain, OD’ ’97 NECO Leadership Scholarship Mentor
New England College of Optometry graduate Dr. Laura Kain’s fondest memories of NECO are the generosity and kindness of people she encountered. Even before she was accepted, Laura had cancelled her other optometry school interview because she was so impressed by the NECO family. Whether it was Hy Kamens or those in the admissions office, each person made a lasting impression.
As a result, Dr. Kain has chosen to make a difference in the lives of others at NECO. “My education at NECO helped me grow personally and professionally. I feel it’s my responsibility to give back and help other students”. A President’s Circle Member for many years, Dr. Kain is one of an increasing number of graduates who have established a NECO Leadership Scholarship. The Dr. Laura Kain Alumni Leadership Scholarship benefits a selected incoming student with a tuition discount over his/her four years at NECO. Both Laura and the student are part of a group of students and alumni who make up a special informal mentoring group throughout the student’s four years.
Laura is making a difference in the academic careers of NECO students.
