Pharmacy Faculty Inducted into Nelson Order

Award Recipients
Norman C. Nelson Order of Teaching Excellence inductees Buddy Ogletree and Laurie Warrington

August 28, 2012

For their ongoing commitment to students and pharmacy education, two School of Pharmacy faculty members were in May inducted into the Norman C. Nelson Order of Teaching Excellence at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

Inductees include Dr. Buddy Ogletree, clinical assistant professor of pharmacy practice and coordinator of drug information and investigational drugs, and Dr. Laurie Warrington, clinical assistant professor of pharmacy practice.

The 2012 inductees were honored at a luncheon with Dr. Nelson, vice chancellor emeritus for health affairs, in the student union at UMMC, which bears his name. The recipients were also recognized during UMMC's May commencement ceremony, and a plaque bearing their names hangs on the Norman C. Nelson Wall of Honor.

Last year's Nelson Order inductees also included two pharmacy school faculty members: Dr. Brian Crabtree, professor of pharmacy practice, and Dr. Justin Sherman, associate professor of pharmacy practice.

The Nelson Order was created to recognize outstanding teachers in all of the professional schools at UMMC.
