Congratulations - Bob Novak Scholarship

The Rochester Section of OPTICA is pleased to announce that Esther Dykstra has been awarded the Bob Novak Scholarship for $1,000. Esther is majoring in Optical Systems Technology and boasts a GPA of 3.7.

Esther expresses her gratitude in a thank you letter, stating that the scholarship has helped her pursue her career aspirations in the field of optics and lift some of the financial burden during tough economic times. She plans to continue working part-time while earning her optical technician degree full-time and is determined to graduate college without any loan debt. Her ultimate goal is to fill the shortage of optical technicians and inspire other women to pursue STEM careers.
