Nephron Pharmaceuticals Gift Supports Pharmacology Program
September 9, 2019, LEXINGTON, S.C. — Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation and CEO Lou Kennedy continued their support of Lexington School District One students with a generous donation to the Lexington One Educational Foundation.
Kennedy recently presented a $9,000 check to the Foundation that will cover course fees for students enrolled in Lexington District One’s Pharmacology course. The district offers the class at both the Lexington Technology Center (LTC) and White Knoll High School.
This donation will pay the required $300 per student fee for 30 students to take the Pharmacology for Medical Careers course offered during the 2019–20 school year.
“We could not be more excited to partner once again with Lexington One,” said Kennedy. “These students deserve to be equipped with the very best educational resources available because they represent South Carolina’s – and our company’s – future workforce.”
This is the third year that Nephron Pharmaceuticals has supported this program in an effort to open the class to all students in Lexington District One, regardless of the cost. In recent years, the company has also donated a Laminar Flow Hood to the LTC classroom and other supplies for the students to use while learning. Nephron staff have also visited the class and shared their industry knowledge with the pharmacology students.
Foundation Chair Rosemary Wilson expressed appreciation on behalf of the Foundation, “We are very thankful to Nephron Pharmaceuticals for the company’s continued support of our students in Lexington District One. We value corporate leaders and district alumni like Lou Kennedy who support public education and our students’ pursuits of their career goals.”
