Student Pharmacists Support Local Charities
This year, the College of Pharmacy was proud to have 43 students run in either the St. Jude full or half-marathon. There were students from every class and from both the Memphis and Knoxville campuses represented in either race, and five students ran the entire 26.2 miles! In addition to the large number of student runners, the College of Pharmacy student organizations also staffed two major water stations. The P1 pledge class fundraising chairs of Kappa Psi and Phi Delta Chi organized the P1 water station at mile 12 and service chairs from both fraternities organized the water station at mile 13 where every student organization was represented.
Both the Pharmacy Student Government Association (PSGA) and the Academy of Student Pharmacists (ASP) made donations to the Mid-South Food Bank during the Thanksgiving holiday. The total donation from student pharmacists was $1,000. “This was a great success and I was very happy that we ended up being able to donate so much on short notice,” remarked Jake Smith (P3), PSGA President.
