SWOSU Pharmacy Students Hold Spelling Bee to Benefit Agape Medical Clinic
April 12, 2012
Southwestern Oklahoma State University pharmacy students recently participated in a spelling bee to raise money for a local charity.
The SWOSU College of Pharmacy students raised nearly $500 for the Agape Medical Clinic in Weatherford to help the clinic serve those who need assistance with medicine, food and clothing.
Twenty-one students participated and approximately 60 students and family members attended to watch the contest. Rho Chi honor society—represented by John Thompson, Jeanna Smith, Minh Ho and Meghan Haftman—organized the event. Drs. Scott Long, Krista Brooks and W. Steven Pray announced the words and served as judges for the event.
Gabriel Pray of Weatherford won the grand prize, an Amazon Kindle Fire tablet, along with an engraved "Champion" compounding spatula. Finishing in second was Melody Elder of Bethany and taking place third was Quynh Phi of Oklahoma City. Both also received compounding spatulas as trophies.
Each participant received a consolation prize. Those providing monetary support or prizes for the event included More Than Medicine, The Cup, Nabors Shoe Center, Ratcliffe's Bookstore, The SWOSU Bookstore, Phi Lambda Sigma, NCPA, Tips N Ends, and The Ramos Family.
