The College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (COPHS) faculty celebrated and saluted the long-standing commitment of Drs. Jean Hampton, Jackie McVea, and Professor Dorothy Quiller for their years of service and dedication to COPHS and its students.
The triumvirate, affectionately known as the “Three Heartbeats,” were honored April 5 at a retirement luncheon hosted by friends and colleagues at a private venue. Dr. Shirlette Milton, interim COPHS dean, delivered a special presentation to each honoree, noting their individual and collective accomplishments.
Dr. Hampton was the first student to graduate from Texas Southern University with a doctoral degree in Environmental Toxicology. She went on to serve the University for over 37 years as program director and became chair of the Health Sciences Department. Dr. McVea and Professor Quiller served COPHS students in the clinical laboratory program for 40 and 45 years, respectively.
