Academic achievement was the focus of the day on April 12 as the College of Pharmacy joined the university community for Honors Day 2014. The event marked the 66th year of recognizing student academic achievement.
Pharmacy students recognized for academic successes and their guests gathered at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium's North End Zone's eighth floor facility. The program included welcoming remarks by Dr. Patrick Davis, senior associate dean for academic affairs. Highlight of the event was the individual recognition of students who received honor cords. A luncheon followed the program.
Afterward, pharmacy students joined with other university scholars in the university-wide celebration at 2 pm at the Erwin Center.
Dr. Lori Holleran Stekler, distinguished teaching associate professor of social work, presented 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.
In recognition of those honored at the 66th annual Honors Day program, the UT Tower was lit orange on April 12.
