SWOSU Pharmacy Foundation Receives Donation from Sheldon Webb
Dr. Sheldon D. Webb of Oklahoma City recently established an endowment with the Southwestern Oklahoma State University College of Pharmacy Foundation that will provide a $1,000 scholarship each year to a third-year pharmacy student on the Weatherford campus.
Webb is a 2008 graduate of SWOSU’s College of Pharmacy. He said he understands the expenses that a third-year student faces, especially as they enter the rotation phase of their curriculum.
“As a former pharmacy scholarship recipient, I want to extend the same support that I was offered,” Webb said.
A Cordell native, Dr. Webb is a former SWOSU homecoming king and was active on campus in several pharmacy organizations as well as the Wesley Foundation and Student Government Association. Webb is a lifetime member of the SWOSU Pharmacy Alumni Association and a council member. He currently works as a Walmart pharmacist.
“The need for scholarships continues to grow, so we are grateful to Dr. Webb for his generosity,” said College of Pharmacy Alumni & Development Director Patti Harper. “This scholarship endowment will help pharmacy students for years to come.”
The 2012 recipient of the Sheldon D. Webb Scholarship is Samantha Lull of Broken Arrow.
