Congratulations to Alley Dorsey, a P4 student from Clermont, GA, and Kelly Nguyen, a P4 student from Lawrenceville, GA, who were both initiated into the Blue Key National Honor Society at UGA this spring. Founded in 1926, Blue Key is one of the oldest and most prestigious honor societies at UGA and is very selective, admitting only the most well-rounded individuals on the basis of leadership, service, academics, and character.
Active in several organizations and services at the College, Alley is President of Lambda Kappa Sigma, Co-Chair of Operation Reproductive Health for the American Pharmacy Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists, a member of the Dean’s Student Advisory Council, a member of the Rho Chi Honor Society, and a student ambassador. In addition, she serves on two national LKS committees. Throughout her academic career at UGA and CoP, she has received several scholarships and honors and has conducted research under Dr. Rebecca Stone, Clinical Associate Professor in CAP.
“It is such an honor and a privilege to be selected as a member of the Blue Key Honor Society for UGA’s Chapter. I am grateful for this opportunity and for the faculty, staff, and fellow peers who have helped me in this accomplishment. I am so thankful for the opportunity to represent our UGA Pharmacy School in Blue Key,” Alley said.
Serving in many organizations at CoP, Kelly is the president and founder of the Asian Pharmacy Student Organization, Phi Delta Chi’s Worthy Alumni Liaison, Student National Pharmaceutical Association Chapter Achievement Program Coordinator, a member of Phi Lambda Sigma, a member of Dean’s Student Advisory Council, and a student ambassador. In Augusta, she is the pharmacy coordinator for Clinica Latina, which serves individuals who do not have health insurance and/or live below 200% of the national poverty level. She also worked with NHPA and BSPO to create the HERE mentorship program, which mentors more than 80 high school students at A. R. Johnson Health Science and Engineering Magnet School in Augusta.
“This is an honor that I could not have achieved without the support of my mentors, friends, family, and professors. I feel immensely grateful to be surrounded by such inspiring and uplifting people. I will continue to work hard to uphold the values of Blue Key,” Kelly said.
