OXFORD, Miss. – The School of Pharmacy is encouraging all its graduates to register for Pharmacy Alumni Weekend, to be held April 4-5 in Oxford.
“I am greatly looking forward to reconnecting with our alumni during Pharmacy Weekend,” said David D. Allen, the school’s dean. “It’s always a wonderful time of fun and fellowship.”
Celebrating reunions in conjunction with the event are the school’s classes of 1954, ‘64, ’74, ’84, ’89 and ’94 and the Pharm.D. class of 2004.
The weekend will kick off with the School of Pharmacy Scholarship Golf Tournament on Friday morning. All the tournament’s proceeds will fund the Pharmacy Alumni Chapter Scholarship, which became fully endowed in 2012. This year’s tournament starts at 10 a.m. at Mallard Pointe Golf Course.
That evening, the Dean’s Reception will be held at 6 in Brevard Hall (formerly Old Chemistry), hosted by Allen and sponsored in part by Bob Broadus and Allergan.
Saturday’s activities begin with a Continuing Education breakfast at 8 a.m. in Butler Auditorium at the Triplett Alumni Center. The Continuing Education program will immediately follow the breakfast.
A meeting for Pharmacy Alumni Chapter board members will be held at 12:30 p.m. in the McMillan Boardroom at The Inn at Ole Miss.
The day’s events include a 6 p.m. reception recognizing 1908 Society members, followed by an awards banquet and reunion dinner in the Ford Ballroom at The Inn. Besides honoring reunion classes at the banquet, the school will present its 2014 Distinguished Alumnus of the Year Award.
Scott Thompson, assistant director of the alumni association, urges all pharmacy alumni to attend.
“Pharmacy Weekend is a great opportunity to catch up with old classmates and make new memories,” Thompson said. “It’s a wonderful, meaningful event that celebrates all of our pharmacy alumni members.”
