Phi Lambda Sigma (PLS) recently elected Katelyn Shatz and Megan McGugan, third-year pharmacy students at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), to offices on the Executive Committee of the national pharmacy leadership society.
Shatz was elected speaker of the house and McGugan national member-at-large. Both students follow in the footsteps of South Carolina College of Pharmacy (SCCP) brethren from the SCCP campuses at MUSC and the University of South Carolina (USC) campus -- Shatz is the fourth straight SCCP student to serve as speaker, following Anthony DeClue MUSC ’16, Krutika Mediwala USC ’15, and Saswat Kabisatpathy MUSC ’14, and McGugan will take the place of Eileen Chen MUSC ’16.
The PLS Executive Committee consists of a president, president-elect, speaker of the house, two members-at-large and the immediate past president as officers, with a parliamentarian, treasurer and the PLS executive director as ex-officio members.
With the support of eight regional liaisons, the Executive Committee is the governing power of the PLS between sessions of the House of Delegates, which consists of the national officers and a delegate and alternate from each chapter.
