The Hamilton Eye Institute at the University of Tennessee held its 45th Annual Ophthalmology Alumni/Resident’s Day on Friday May 20th. At this event, GHS-TV Department Chair Allison Long was presented with the Hamilton Eye Institute’s Distinguished Service Award for the hard work of the student run news station. Over the past 18 months, GHS-TV students have worked with the Hamilton Eye Institute to tell their long and storied history with a unique access show called Mentors.
As Mentors came to a close, the students of GHS-TV worked tirelessly to put the final touches on the show, which highlighted the legacy of The Hamilton Eye Institute. With the effort and the enthusiasm put forth by the students of GHS-TV, Chairman and Philip M. Lewis Professor of Ophthalmology, James Fleming; and Hamilton Professor of Ophthalmology, Barrett Haik awarded the news station with the Institutes very own service award.
