Please help me congratulate the 2018 Linda T. Rogers Award Winner Anh Tran from Beta Xi Colony! A message from Anh “I can remember the moment I wanted to be a Pharmacist. I was working at a small, suburban hospital and I recall being on rounds with a team that included a Doctor, Pharmacist, Nurse, Dietician, and a Respiratory Therapist. The Doctor asked for input on medications and the Pharmacist confidently offered his recommendations. I was impressed with how much he knew about medicine. I knew from that very moment that I wanted to make an impact like that Pharmacist. I started to research undergraduate requirements, applied to pharmacy schools, and here I am, a P4 on rotation looking forward to graduation. As I reflect back on the past three years of pharmacy school, I can genuinely say that I have enjoyed my pharmacy school experience. Every experience (good or bad) has made me a better, wiser, and stronger person. I have acquired leadership skills through various organizations, maintained high scholastic academic achievement, and have also made everlasting friendships among classmates and Kappa Epsilon. I am truly honored to be awarded the Linda Rogers Scholarship Award. The scholarship will go towards taking my NAPLEX and MPJE as I know these exams are associated with a lot of fees. I also want to add that not only will the scholarship help me financially, but it also a great opportunity to expose KE values and more importantly, spreading awareness about Breast Cancer in honor of Linda Rogers. Our chapter, Beta Xi, is excited about this recognition.
