Abbie Martin, Cleveland Ohio, Receives the 2018 Bud Thoma Award!

The 2018 Bud Thoma Award was presented to Mrs. Abbie Martin during the OAO Annual Conference.

The Bud Thoma Award is the highest honor that can be bestowed on an Ohio Optician.


Presentation Comments included the following:


The 2018 Bud Thoma Award Winner comes as no surprise and is certainly most deserving. When we think of award winners we often think of someone consistently in the lime light, however Abbie has often stayed behind the scenes, always the worker bee, so to speak.


One of her specialties is keeping many aspects of our organization in perfect order. Sometimes even keeping order.  


Abbie has never expected acknowledgement or praise.


She has been a member of OAO and OAA for more many, many years, including serving on the OAO Board of Trustees. She is always willing to help at any and all OAO or OAA events. She gives  generously of self, taking on any assignment for our organization and completing it most efficiently.


Abbie consistently encourages membership, and member loyalty. You can count on her ever positive attitude and pointing out the bright side of any situation.


Other notable roles of Abbie would include working hard to raise funds in support of our PAC and Legislative funds.  


Please extend Congratulations to Abbie, a most deserving 2018 award recipient.
