Dr. Amy Herbranson
Dr. Amy Herbranson has often been the face of college recruiting efforts in Hawaii. She has made in-person and virtual presentations to various community colleges and pre-pharmacy groups in Hawaii. She has also made herself available to talk with any interested pre-pharmacy student. Dr. Herbranson's actions serve to illustrate her dedication as a Pharmacy Alumni Society Board Member volunteer.
Dr. Dana Simonson
Dr. Dana Simonson, Pharmacy Alumni Society president from 2020 to 2021, has been far more than a presidential leader. She has been an innovative thinker who developed and implemented new ideas for connecting alumni and our entire pharmacy community over the past two years. Under Dr. Simonson’s leadership during the pandemic, the focus became one of finding unique virtual cultural events that illuminated different parts of the University of Minnesota. These fun and creative virtual events were well received and engaged an audience without regard to geographic area. Dr. Simonson’s commitment to the college and our students has been integral to the success of Alumni Affairs in the past year.
