Alumni Ping and Allen Rogers are incredibly grateful for the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy – not only for the education they received, but for the lifetime of friendships and networks fostered by the close-knit pharmacy community within the School.

“I have a deep sense of gratitude for the School and Allen and I have been able to move forward in our careers in ways we could not have dreamed of. Part of that is because of the great foundation that was laid at the School,” Ping said.

For more than four years, Ping (’90, BSPharm) and Allen (’90 BSPharm, ’03 Pharm.D.) have shown their appreciation through the establishment and continual support of the David A. Rogers, Sr. and Dr. T.Y. Su Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The scholarship supports a first-generation college student each year and honors both Ping’s and Allen’s fathers. Allen’s father served in Vietnam and came home to work in the textile industry with his wife to support their family. Ping’s parents immigrated to the United States from Taiwan to further their education, bravely making the move without knowing anyone and having to overcome cultural barriers that were in place in order for their family to succeed, Ping said.

“Our parents sacrificed greatly in order for us to further our education,” Ping said. “Now, we’ve been fortunate enough that we can give back and inspire great students…and I hope we can inspire them to pay it forward.”

This year’s recipient of the scholarship is Pharm.D. student Maggie Fogle.

In a video to Ping and Allen, Fogle says, “I just want to thank you for your very generous support…you have lightened my financial burden so I can focus more on schoolwork and learning. Hopefully 10, 15 years down the road I’ll be able to use my success to give back to the next generation of pharmacists, just like you did.”
