Ian Cheslock '21: College of Optometry Outstanding Clinician Award
Ian Cheslock OD ’21 received the Pacific University College of Optometry’s 2021 Outstanding Clinician Award.
His professors noted his "outstanding performance as an all-around optometric clinician."
Cheslock, who is from Longview, Wash., is a legacy optometrist. His father, William Cheslock ’77, OD ’80, and his grandfather, John T. Cheslock ’68, OD ’70, both graduated from Pacific.
Ian Cheslock, in fact, had the privilege of carving his grandfather's name into the wet concrete outside College Hall when his grandfather's class reached Golden Guard status.
Ian Cheslock graduated in May 2021 with his doctor of optometry.
