Pharmacy students being recognized for academic successes and their guests will gather beginning at 10:30 am at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium's North End Zone's eighth floor facility. The program, which begins at 11 am, includes welcoming remarks by Dr. Patrick Davis, senior associate dean for academic affairs. Highlight of the event will be individual recognition of students who will receive honor cords. A luncheon follows the program.
Pharmacy students will join with other university scholars in the university-wide celebration beginning at 2 pm at the Erwin Center.
Dr. Lori Holleran Stekler, distinguished teaching associate professor of social work, will present the keynote address at the university-wide event. She is an addictions therapist turned scholar whose research focuses on adolescent substance abuse prevention, intervention, and recovery.
