Patti Harper of Weatherford is the new Alumni & Development Officer for the College of Pharmacy at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

In addition to being the director of the Pharmacy Continuing Education programs, she is now administering the development plans as well as alumni events for the SWOSU College of Pharmacy.

“I am excited about my new role,” Harper said. “I have met many pharmacy alumni through the continuing education programs in the 20 years that I have been with the SWOSU College of Pharmacy. I look forward to a continued positive relationship with them and meeting more of the alumni in the future.”

In her new A&D position at SWOSU, Harper is devoting major efforts to the SWOSU The Focus fundraising campaign, specifically for the College of Pharmacy. The pharmacy campaign is designed to address the funding priorities vital to the future of the College of Pharmacy and the continued advancement of pharmacy education for SWOSU students, primarily funding scholarships, academic enrichment, and endowments for the future.

“The unique connection the SWOSU pharmacy alumni have with each other, as well as their alma mater, is truly special,” Harper said. “SWOSU pharmacy alumni uphold the highest of standards of excellence in the field of pharmacy, and they expect the tradition of excellence to continue within the College of Pharmacy.”

Harper said several alumni and friends have already contributed to the campaign, and she believes even more will do so in the near future.

“I truly believe more alumni will help the College of Pharmacy pave the way for even greater accomplishments in the future,” Harper said.

The A&D Office will continue to schedule pharmacy alumni activities, such as homecoming events and pharmacy alumni dinners. And, with the help of the pharmacy alumni, the A&D office will develop strategies to enhance the SWOSU Pharmacy Alumni Association.
