Ron Smith, chief operating officer of Biologics and Campbell pharmacy grad, welcomed new and returning students to Buies Creek at the College’s annual Convocation ceremony today.
Smith reflected on the first Convocation ceremony he attended at Campbell nearly twenty years ago. He still remembered the advice that Dr. Jack Watts gave to his incoming class, the class of 1998. Watts shared that they were entering healthcare at a wonderful time, that Campbell would equip them to be leaders in their industry, and they were there to make a difference in people’s lives.

She’s been working around the clock with the new program’s faculty and staff to meet accreditation deadlines, and help create a curriculum, develop courses and establish relationships with health care facilities.
