Alumni and Friends Drive Scholarship Support to Pharm.D. Students at 2018 Golf Classic
UH College of Pharmacy alumni and friends battled a sultry summer morning and challenging elevations to raise funds for UHCOP Pharm.D. students at the 2018 UHCOP Golf Classic June 4 at Wildcat Golf Club.
Proceeds generated from individual player and team registrations as well as sponsorships are used to fund individual student scholarship awards, travel awards to professional meetings, and support for non-research academic needs not funded by state resources, such as computers. The 2018 event raised $2,700 for students, although the specific allocations have yet to be decided.
The UHCOP Golf Classic Committee, co-chaired by faculty members Elizabeth Coyle and Doug Eikenburg, gratefully acknowledged the support of the 2018 sponsors:
- Gold – Jeff ('05) and Jennifer ('05) Harrison;
- Silver – Brookshire Brothers Pharmacy;
- Red & White – Chi-Ngo Chen (’02), Doug Eikenburg, Jim Rutan (’92), David Wallace (’98) & Sarah Lake-Wallace (’00); and
- Cougar – Pharm House Drug Co. and Charles “Chuck” Kneip (’92).
The first- and second-place Low Gross teams were Fred Emmite and Dick, Rick ('04) and Kyle Schneider, followed by Jim Rutan, John Hargroue, Chuck Kneip and Melchor Garza ('92).
The first- and second-place Lot Net teams were Lamar Pritchard, William Heath, Jerry Merrill and Jonathan Merrill ('16), followed by Doug Eikenburg, Kathy Ryan and Steve Garfield.
Among the individual competitions, Closest to the Pin was won by Thomas Chen, and Rick Schneider smacked the Longest Drive.
In addition to the paid sponsorships, the following individuals and companies provided door prizes as an additional thank you to players: Beautique Day Spa & Salon, Elizabeth Coyle, Doug Eikenburg, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, Kendra Scott, Chip Lambert, Michael's Cookie Jar, Raspberry Rose, Shiva Indian Restaurant, Sweet Moment Nail & Pedi, Vincent Ford Custom Apparel, and David Wallace & Sarah Lake-Wallace.
