Salus University Names Toland Scholarship Winner

Heather McKay ‘22OD has been named the Joseph C. Toland Memorial Scholarship winner by the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) at Salus University.

The Toland Scholarship is awarded to a second-year PCO student(s) who has demonstrated exceptional clinical promise during their early patient care assignments, while also demonstrating kindness and compassion in the delivery of care, those personal qualities that epitomized the compassionate care and kindness representative of Dr. Toland.

Dr. Toland was a beloved teacher, clinical provider and a 1954 graduate of PCO. He selflessly supported the mission of PCO through advocacy and leadership and his advocacy was central to the therapeutic profession that is optometry today. His gentle and humble teaching style made him an effective teacher throughout his 45-year tenure at PCO/Salus, and his personal characteristics of kindness, compassion and loyalty represent qualities for all to admire and emulate.
