New scholarship helps pharmacy school students

Aug. 19, 2013 @ 12:15 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The Paula Campbell Butterfield Scholarship has been created for students at Marshall University's School of Pharmacy.

The scholarship is named in honor of Paula Campbell Butterfield, a pharmacist and longtime owner of Trivillian's Pharmacy, an independently owned pharmacy in Charleston. Butterfield, who completed her pharmacy degree at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, has owned and operated Trivillian's for more than 30 years.

"Ms. Butterfield's generosity is obvious, not only in her willingness to create a scholarship for our students, but in her everyday commitment to mentoring young pharmacists in the field," said Dr. Kevin Yingling, the dean of the pharmacy school. "Additionally, she is the epitome of what a community pharmacist should be, a valued member of the health care team dedicated to educating her patients about their medications and how to use them safely."

The scholarship will be awarded to a recipient who is a full-time student at the school and a resident of West Virginia. First preference will be for a female student who lives in Kanawha County or an adjacent county, such as Jackson, Roane, Clay, Nicholas, Fayette, Raleigh, Boone, Lincoln or Putnam. The recipient must have and maintain a 3.0 grade point average.
