wo Doctor of Pharmacy students, Rosemary Call of Gulfport and Brent Crenshaw of Southaven, were inducted into the School of Pharmacy Hall of Fame during spring commencement ceremonies. Both were selected by their classmates for their significant scholastic and professional contributions to the school.

"Dr. Call is an exceptional young woman who continually demonstrates compassion for the needs of others, including classmates, patients or people with whom she is not acquainted," said Marvin Wilson, associate dean for academic and student affairs. "She has demonstrated formal and informal leadership since she enrolled at Ole Miss six years ago. It is fitting that her classmates selected her to receive this prestigious recognition."

Call, a native of Ellenville, N.Y., is a recipient of the Marcus Elvis Taylor Memorial Medal, the university's highest academic honor. She also is a member of Phi Kappa Phi honor society, Rho Chi pharmacy honor society and Phi Lambda Sigma pharmacy leadership society. During the pharmacy school's 2011 awards program, she received the Eli Lilly and Company Award for Leadership and the U.S. Public Health Service Excellence in Public Health Pharmacy Practice Award. Upon graduation, she will begin a community pharmacy residency with the School of Pharmacy in Jackson.

Crenshaw served as class president all six years of his Doctor of Pharmacy program, the only student in the school's history to accomplish that feat. He is a member of Phi Lambda Sigma and the Mississippi Society of Health-System Pharmacists and was listed in Who's Who Among American Colleges and Universities in 2009. He will begin work as a pharmacist with the CVS pharmacy in Southaven after graduation.

"Dr. Crenshaw has for each of the past six years been the elected leader of his class, which speaks to the level of respect his classmates have for him." said Wilson. "No other individual has been so honored by his or her peers, and this is a noteworthy testimonial to his interpersonal skills. I have truly enjoyed this extended opportunity to interact with him in this leadership capacity and look forward to his seizing continuing professional leadership opportunities."
