A Legacy of Giving
Jaime Delgado was one of those special professors pharmacy students never forget. Delgado, who died in 2001, taught 6,000 students during his 42 years on the UT faculty. He had a connection with them, perhaps because he earned pharmacy degrees from UT in 1954 and 1955. Or maybe it was the cookouts that graduate students attended at his home. Either way, his life revolved around his students.
Delgado met his wife, Celia, while both were in pharmacy school. Their daughter, Celyna, earned a pharmacy degree of her own before becoming a physician.
The Delgados have given generously to UT over the years. Mother and daughter have created a professorship and graduate fellowships in Jaime's memory, and they have included the College of Pharmacy in their estate plans. Together they celebrate his legacy as an educator, role model and, for many students, a father figure.
You can be a philanthropist, too. Make a gift of appreciation for your own pharmacy education or honor someone who has made a difference in your life.
