Kappa Psi Student Organization Wins Award

TTUHSC Kappa PsiIn March, five members of the Kappa Psi – Epsilon Tau chapter from TTUHSC’s Abilene campus traveled to the Kappa Psi Southwest Province Assembly in Norman, Oklahoma and received the organization’s prestigious 99 Hands Award. The award recognizes the best philanthropic event from the region, which includes Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Colorado. 

Second-year pharmacy student Christie Baker, who serves as Kappa Psi Epsilon’s vice regent, said the recognition was special for the Abilene chapter.

“This award was judged based on number of brothers involved, number of community members serviced and best promotion of the pharmacy profession,” Baker said. “We are extremely proud to be honored with this award, especially since we are such a small chapter.”

School of Pharmacy


The School of Pharmacy was established in 1996 and now has campuses in Amarillo, Lubbock, Dallas and Abilene. Since its inception, the school has played a significant role in addressing the state's pharmacist shortage. Today, more than 90 percent of its graduates remain in Texas.

The school requires its students to complete more clinical training hours than any other pharmacy program in the country, making its students some of the most sought after graduates.
