Associate Dean and Professor of the College of Pharmacy Dr. Kinsley Kelley Kiningham has served the College since 2009 and since then has acquired a number of accolades including the Presidential Faculty Achievement Award in 2013 and the Most Influential Faculty Member designation by the class of 2013.
Most recently, Dr. Kiningham continued her direct contribution to student success by establishing the Warren E. Angel Pharmaceutical Education Endowed Scholarship, named in honor of her late grandfather who significantly contributed to Dr. Kiningham’s life. The scholarship has been designed to support student pharmacists in good academic standing who attended Middle Tennessee State University, Dr. Kiningham’s alma mater.
Dr. Kiningham said because her career was made possible through the generosity of her grandparents and others, she has always dreamed of establishing a scholarship to provide assistance for students. “It is my hope that this award will help the recruiting efforts of Belmont College of Pharmacy and give students peace of mind while helping them to achieve their professional goals. My grandfather, Warren E. Angel, lived a life of service and was very influential in encouraging me to help others, as well as teaching me to work hard to achieve my dreams. This scholarship is humbly created in his memory with the hope of helping others in a lasting way,” Kiningham said.
Professor and Dean of the College of Pharmacy Phil Johnston said, “Dr. Kiningham has been an inspiration to everyone she has worked with at Belmont, exemplifying the skills and demeanor it takes to balance responsibilities in the classroom, service to the College and University, research and community service. Faculty find her to be a trustworthy colleague and a champion for students. Dr. Kiningham has been a model for us all.”
