Dear Auburn Pharmacy Family,

My name is Kori Caldwell and I have recently been selected as the new Development Officer for the Harrison School of Pharmacy. I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and share with you how excited I am to be on board and become a part of the HSOP Family.

It has been a hectic time to come in to a new place right at the end of the semester, but I can already feel the great passion and excitement everyone has about being a part of this school and what it means to everyone.

I am no stranger to Auburn, though. I feel like I have been here my whole life. For about the last 10 years I was in Development in Auburn’s College of Engineering, right across the street. Prior to that, I worked for a few years in the Auburn business community and I am a 2002 Auburn graduate. So, needless to say, I definitely have blue and orange running through my veins.

My goal is to connect you to Auburn in a way that is meaningful to you. We have some amazing things happening within Pharmacy that we will need your support to attain. I have heard stories about the great alumni and friends we have in our program and all that you do, and we are always extremely grateful for your support. I look forward to getting to know each of you, why you love Auburn and how I can help you to stay connected or reengage.

As we move into the spring semester, I hope to be out and visiting with some of you. I also welcome you to stop by the Walker Building anytime you are around as I love being able to put faces and names together, and get to know you better.

Again, I can’t tell you how excited I, along with my husband Daniel and daughter Julia, are to be a part of the Harrison School of Pharmacy now. I hope you all have a great Holiday Season and I look forward to meeting you very soon!

War Eagle!
