Clark Haney Wells of Tahoka, Texas, has given $7,500 to the Southwestern Oklahoma State University College of Pharmacy in Weatherford.

Wells, a 1979 graduate of SWOSU, is a third generation pharmacist and drugstore owner in Tahoka. Tahoka Drug was opened by Wells’ grandfather in 1923.

The donation is part of the SWOSU College of Pharmacy $1 million FOCUS campaign, which includes raising money for academic program enrichment, scholarships and the College of Pharmacy’s museum.

“I believe that I received the finest pharmacy education in the United States at SWOSU, and I owe so much to the school that made my success in life possible,” Wells said. “I wanted to give something back to help insure that future generations may learn at SWOSU and for the tradition of excellence in the College of Pharmacy that it is well known for in many circles.”

Wells recently toured the SWOSU campus and was very pleased with the remodeling that has taken place at the college. He encourages all alumni to visit and see the changes.

Wells is a past president of the Tahoka Rotary Club and is organist at the First United Methodist Church in Tahoka. He is a life-time member of the SWOSU Pharmacy Alumni Association and is a member of the Texas Pharmacy Association and the National Community Pharmacist’s Association. He enjoys reading and spending time with his family—wife Tanya and son Patrick.
