It’s quite an honor to receive an award that recognizes the contributions you’ve made to your chosen field. It’s an even bigger honor to have an award named after you, one that will continue to recognize the excellence of those who come after you.
Pharmacist and educator Metta Lou Henderson received such an honor in August 2021 when she was awarded the first Dr. Metta Lou Henderson Award for Excellence in Academia. Henderson was presented with the award at the Kappa Epsilon’s virtual convention when the professional pharmaceutical fraternity celebrated its centennial anniversary. She was honored as the initial recipient of the award that will be given to others in the future.
