CHARLESTON, WV -

A group of students at the University of Charleston received a national honor on Tuesday, Oct. 29. Keith Allhands, a member of the Christian Pharmacist Fellowship International Committee, awarded the CPFI National Student Chapter of the Year Award to the University of Charleston School of Pharmacy's chapter.

The presentation took place during convocation in Riggleman Hall's Geary Auditorium. The students were chosen for their outreach programs, fundraisers, and health campaigns. The group members said they were very surprised to win. "I'm at a loss for words. Our group is totally excited. We are actually pushing to repeat it and win this year too," said Adam Brumfield, a UC pharmacy student.

The University of Charleston's School of Pharmacy student chapter of CPFI was chosen out of 84 student chapters in the United States. Criteria for winning the award includes: number of chapter meetings, outreach programs, fundraisers and health campaigns, attendance at national meetings and bible studies. The award was announced at the national meeting in June, 2013 in Flat Rock, N.C.
