Phi Lambda Sigma Society Inducts New Members
Published on 21 February 2021
Four students from the classes of 2022 and 2023 will be inducted into the Alpha Theta chapter of Phi Lambda Sigma at St. Louis College of Pharmacy at University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis.
Phi Lambda Sigma, an honorary pharmacy leadership society, was founded in 1965 with the Alpha Theta chapter established at the college in 1990. The society recognizes students who have demonstrated dedication and leadership in the advancement of pharmacy and are of high moral and ethical character.
Each year, the society also has the option to induct an honorary member who has demonstrated dedication, leadership and service to the profession of pharmacy, including those pursuing degrees in pharmaceutical sciences.
This year, Isaac Butler, Pharm.D., MBA, CDFT, vice president for career services and education, and chief diversity officer, was selected as this year’s honorary member for his leadership in educating the campus community about social and cultural disparities as well as his work to launch the Center for Career Services and Education. Butler’s nomination cited his dedication to mentoring and assisting students to become the best that they can be through consistent support and guidance.
Phi Lambda Sigma members are selected by peer recognition and must have successfully completed at least one professional year in a pharmacy program with a cumulative grade point average of 2.70 on a 4.00 grading scale. As deemed by their peers, these students have demonstrated excellence in leadership, participated in professional activities and exemplify professionalism.
Butler and the new members will be inducted into the prestigious society during a small, in-person ceremony on Feb. 26.
