Giving to Future Generations

Making an impact on Carolina pharmacy students for years to come.

Making an impact on Carolina pharmacy students for years to come.

Evelyn Lloyd ’65 followed in the footsteps of her father, Allen Lloyd ’40, in earning her B.S. in pharmacy from Carolina.

The Lloyd family has been a mainstay in downtown Hillsborough for decades. Evelyn worked alongside her father at James Pharmacy and then at Lloyd’s Pharmacy, which she now runs herself.

It’s Evelyn’s hope that her impact on the community is felt for decades to come. Last fall, she included the School of Pharmacy in her estate plans. Her gift will support renovations of Beard Hall to help enhance the student experience for future generations of Carolina pharmacists.

“Our School’s reputation is built on alumni like Evelyn who dedicate their lives to improving the health of their communities,” said Dr. Mary McClurg, executive vice dean and chief academic officer of the Eshelman School of Pharmacy. “Evelyn cares deeply about her patients, the profession of pharmacy and Carolina.”

The Eshelman Institute for Innovation is made possible by a $100 million gift from Fred Eshelman to accelerate the creation and development of ideas leading to discoveries and transformative changes in education, research and health care. To learn more about the EII’s impact, in new window.
