Briefs: Fruth funds School of Pharmacy scholarships

Oct. 20, 2013 @ 09:21 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Marshall University announced this week it received two separate gifts for student scholarships totaling $24,000 from West Virginia-based Fruth Pharmacy.

Kevin Yingling, dean of the School of Pharmacy, said the relationship with Fruth Pharmacy is of significant importance to the emerging school and developing of team-based health care in our region.

"We are so grateful for the support of Lynne Fruth and the entire Fruth Pharmacy family," Yingling said in a written statement. "As a West Virginia-based pharmacy, they understand that pharmacy education is essential to ensuring better health outcomes for those in our state and region."

In addition to the $11,000 gift to the School of Pharmacy, the company also presented the university with $13,000 for the Fruth Pharmacy Scholarship. Established in 1995, this scholarship is awarded to qualifying employees, or relatives of active employees of Fruth Pharmacy who are enrolled full- or part-time at Marshall University.
