Marguerite Barthelem was recently appointed the new student member on the Opticians Association of America's Board of Directors. She brings a lot of excitement to her new position and to opticianry. It all started with her frst pair of eyeglass- es as a young child. "If I had to be a four eyes, I would do it in the most fashionable way possible. I made sure I had the most fun frames I could fnd with matching tinted lenses." Today, Marguerite is a full-time student in the Hillsborough Community College Opticianry program. Her dream is to own her own business. Marguerite feels strongly about leadership."Having attended two OAA State Leadership conferences, I am fully confdent that I am learning from the best to become the best I can be for my profession. I will continue to learn how to be the best leader I can be because our profession is in great need of excellent leaders."
