College of Pharmacy Student Selected to Participate in Inaugural Phi Lambda Sigma Collegiate Leader Academy

Congratulations to Erica McCoy, a fourth-year College of Pharmacy student, who was recently selected to participate in Phi Lambda Sigma’s (PLS) inaugural Leader Academy.

McCoy will belong to a cohort of 11 third- and fourth-year PLS pharmacy students from across the country who will meet from October 2020 through May 2021. The inaugural Leader Academy class includes an additional cohort of 11 students who will complete the program at the same time.

"This is the first time PLS is offering the leader academy and I knew it would be a great opportunity for me to work on my leadership development. Since our P4 year is spent at sites away from NEOMED, I thought this would be the perfect time in my schooling for me to get involved in this longitudinal opportunity and focus in on developing myself as a leader," says McCoy.

The Leader Academy is designed to help good leaders become great leaders. Participants will work with a facilitator and third- and fourth-year pharmacy PLS students from across the nation to learn and practice leadership skills. Ultimately, participants are expected to share what they’ve learned with their local chapter by the time they complete the Academy program.
