Heidi Anksorus, Pharm.D., was awarded Kappa Epsilon’s Unicorn Award for recognition of her service to the organization as an adviser. The award is given biennially and recognizes alumni participation and involvement within the fraternity.
Anksorus has been at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy since October 2010. She’s been adviser to the fraternity since fall 2012.
As adviser, Anksorus attends chapter and executive board meetings, participates in rush events each fall, donates items and activities to the silent and live auctions and attends all the fundraising events she can. Anksorus also hosts “Crafternoons with Dr. A,” has sung at karaoke, and supports the annual Caring Community 5k that the organization hosts as a fundraiser.
“I’ll do whatever they need. I love to have fun, but I also do my best to advise students with needs and help leaders troubleshoot and discuss concerns,” Anksorus said.
She received her service award at the awards ceremony and officer installation on the last day of the national convention, which was held in New Orleans August 2-5.
