• Medical School groundbreaking Thursday morning • Students benefit from N.C. Baptist Scholarships • Grad named president of pharmacists society • Both basketball squads named to mid-major polls

As a child, Kim Lewis’s mother, a math teacher, always told her daughter to never become a teacher, but for some reason Lewis always found herself in an “educator’s role.” After graduating from pharmacy school, Lewis completed a pediatric ambulatory care residency at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio and a component of the position was a teaching certificate from Ohio State University. During the residency, she was a teacher’s assistant for the drug information course. Against her mother’s advice, Lewis was hoping for a positive experience, and to her surprise, that is exactly what she received. “Looking back over my life, I feel that being an educator was my calling and becoming a faculty member was the best decision I ever made,” said Lewis, who is currently an assistant professor of pharmacy practice at Campbell University.
