By College of Pharmacy Advancement, 3/4/13
Joshua Gaborcik, a third-year Doctor of Pharmacy student, recently received The Ohio State University Board of Trustees Student Recognition Award at the Board’s February meeting. A native of Gahanna, Ohio, he is the vice president of Pharmacy Council and chair of the College of Pharmacy Honor Council.
Dean Robert Brueggemeier nominated Gaborcik for this recognition.
“Josh is an ardent supporter of the pharmacy profession and professionalism. He is a great asset to Ohio State and the College of Pharmacy,” said Brueggemeier.
Prior to professional school, Gaborcik received his Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2010 from Ohio State. As an undergraduate, he was an active student leader and involved in the college’s Pre-Pharmacy Club. Gaborcik also served as a resident advisor and was inducted into the Mortar Board National Honor Society.
“I could not have imagined the life that I am currently living and the memories that I have captured along the way,” said Gaborcik. “But for Ohio State, I would not have found an extended family, a second home, and a place that I truly love.”
At each meeting, the Board recognizes two students from two different colleges nominated by their respective deans. The honor is awarded to students who stand out in the academic arena, demonstrate outstanding research in his/her field, promote diversity, and/or excel in civic/university service.
