Best Ever Celebrity Visit

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins recently tweeted on his account that he had LASIK surgery with Dr. Holzman last week.  Check out a what others were blogging about when it came to this topic.

I wanted to brag about how cool Kirk Cousins was on each of his visits to our Center.  You'd think that as a professional football player, well, that he'd be holier than thou.  But, could his parents have raised a nicer, more respectful young man?!?!  I am really proud of how he's chosen to represent himself.  It's probably not the easiest thing to be a solid, positive role model for others, but he's definitely setting the bar high for other athletes.  

My most favorite memory is when he took the time to visit with one of our youngest "employees".  Ok, he is really a staff member's son, and he had to visit us for the day because of the unexpected school cancellation, one of many for the area this winter.  Kirk took the time to chat with our littlest employee.  They posed for pictures.  And, when we realized that the pictures were blurry, Kirk, who was already almost out the door, came back to pose for another set of - clear! - pictures with our star-struck kiddo.  What kind of celebrity athlete would have taken the time or cared to do that?  He could have walked right out like he hadn't heard us, but nope.  He really took the time to make a lasting impression on us all. 
Great job, Kirk!  It's really cool to have you play for our home team!  - jw
