BUIES CREEK, North Carolina – The Campbell University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences Alumni Association named Michael L. Adams, PharmD, PhD, one of its Distinguished Alumni at its annual Homecoming Tailgate on Saturday, Oct. 24.
The Distinguished Alumni Award was established by the Campbell University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences (CPHS) Alumni Association Board of Directors to recognize and celebrate the achievements of Campbell’s doctor of pharmacy graduates that have demonstrated exemplary achievement in any type of organization (i.e. education, government, private, civic, non-profit, corporate, entrepreneurial, etc.), while helping to build and maintain a community of alumni, students, faculty and friends that enhances the professional, personal and academic development of CPHS alumni and students.
This award is the highest of honors and is only awarded when the board feels that the recipient has gone above and beyond in demonstrating the qualities the award deserves.
“Dr. Adams is a camel through and through,” said Leigh Foushee, PharmD, director of alumni relations. “His mentorship, love of teaching, and passion for Campbell led to our students naming him Professor of the Year nine consecutive times. His wife, Dina, and he are lifetime members of the Association and are great examples of dedication, Campbell pride, and Christian love that we hope all of our students and alumni embody.”
Adams serves as acting vice president for health programs at Campbell and dean of the College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences. He earned his doctor of pharmacy from Campbell University and his doctor of philosophy in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Washington.
Adams joins two other distinguished alumni (listed by order of induction):
- James E. Herring, Jr., PharmD ’95
- LeAnne Kennedy, PharmD ’93
