Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy student Theodora Hampton, and faculty mentor Dr. Julie Sease, professor of pharmacy practice and associate dean of academic affairs, were named to the 2017 American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy Walmart Scholars list.
“I am so proud of Theodora for having been selected as a Walmart Scholar by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy,” Sease said. “She has the potential to become an excellent pharmacist and educator in the future, and I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to positively impact her growth and development.
AACP and Walmart share the commitment to help colleges and schools of pharmacy ensure there is an adequate number of well-prepared individuals who aspire to join the faculties at our expanding number of institutions across the country. The goal of the scholarship program is to strengthen the recipient’s skills and commitment to a career in academic pharmacy through their participation at the AACP Annual Meeting.
“The Walmart Scholar program is competitive, and Theodora’s selection is a testament to the high caliber of student we have here at the Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy,” Sease added.
The program provides $1,000 travel scholarships to 85 student/faculty pairs chosen from AACP member institutions to attend the AACP annual meeting and the AACP teachers seminar in Nashville, Tenn., from July 15-19.
