The PCO chapter of the Gold Key International Optometric Honor Society held their induction dinner in late January and welcomed 13 new members from the Salus PCO Classes of 2017 and 2018.
The Gold Key Society was established in 1965 by the student council at the Southern College of Optometry (SCO) for the purpose of recognizing upper-classmen who demonstrated outstanding professional and ethical attitude through leadership and service to their class, college, and profession. In 1972 the society became independent of the SCO student council and established itself as the leadership honor society for all schools and colleges of optometry. To reflect the society’s new status the name was changed to The Gold Key International Optometric Honor Society.
