TSHP Special Recognition Award

Morgan Payne

The TSHP Board of Directors periodically recognizes individuals who have ‘gone the extra mile’ for the profession, and who have made contributions to professional, educational, organizational or community service. A new award, the TSHP Special Recognition Award, is designed to do just that. The most recent recipient is Morgan Payne, a pharmacy student at the University of Houston College of pharmacy. As a P1 pharmacy student attending the TSHP 2012 Annual Seminar, she immediately recognized what an impact early involvement can have on a student’s pharmacy school experience and future career. Her passion for inspiring others and motivating future pharmacy student leaders shines through in a video documentary she made in promotion for students attending the 2013 Annual Seminar: http://youtu.be/pDDVRUjcsqE. Morgan grew up in Spring, just northwest of the Houston Metropolitan Area. She obtained her Pharmacy Technician Certification at the age of eighteen and began working as a technician at a local pharmacy the same year. While maintaining her employment, Ms. Payne completed her undergraduate coursework at Texas A&M University in College Station where she obtained her Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. She recently completed her second year of pharmacy school at UH. She is very active in numerous student organizations, previously serving in leadership roles for the UH Pharm. D. Class of 2015, University of Houston Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists, and Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity, Inc. This year, she will be serving as the Vice President of Communications for the UH Student Society of Health-System Pharmacists. In addition, she is a member of the TSHP Student Section Executive Committee.
