Springtime is always a special time. Many of us are celebrating anniversaries, weddings, graduations, and other notable details. Our Alumni weekend, March 30 to April 2, 2017, was a success.┬áWe kicked off with a Student Alumni Mixer, followed by an informative CE program featuring our very own, Dr. Alan Ryan, and Dr. Patricia Ayuk. Each spring, we have hosted our signature fundraising event, the Pharmacy Alumni Awards Gala to recognize and pay homage to our most esteemed alumni, and faculty of the College of Pharmacy.
This 150th anniversary year, we introduced the Alumni by the Decades Awards and a Distinguished New Practitioner Award. We appreciate your feedback and participation in the selection process. There was as always our Distinguished Alumnus of the Year C.I. Cooper Award, and a Distinguished Faculty Award. I had a great time over the weekend, and I loved seeing each of you in the place, catching up, or meeting for the first time.
Stay tuned for our next quarterly general body meetings for the summer and fall. I will provide updates on the news at the college and other activities the Alumni Association has planned.
