Dr. McCurdy was a mentor to me during my time at ONU, in every sense of the word. I always enjoyed the sense of community at the College of Pharmacy, and Dr. McCurdy is the person who truly made me feel at home at ONU. He always showed genuine support for the students and made each student feel special. Personally, I owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. McCurdy for shaping me into the person and the pharmacist I am today. He supported me in my professional development, taking the time to sit down and talk one on one in his office to encourage me in leadership endeavors, external scholarships and other opportunities I might not have otherwise pursued. The high expectations that he set for me continually motivated me to personally challenge myself. Not only did he support me as a student pharmacist, but he supported me as an individual. I was a member of University Singers for my five years on campus, and I could always count on seeing Dr. McCurdy in the audience of every choir concert at Presser Hall and in the crowded church basement for each of our spaghetti dinners. Especially since my family could rarely make these events, it meant the world to me that Dr. McCurdy was always there. Dr. McCurdy was a major influence personally and professionally, and I can honestly say that I would not have realized my potential and challenged myself to accomplish as much as I had in school or have since graduation without his mentorship. I would not be the person I am today were it not for him. I really can’t do justice to the impact that Bob McCurdy has had on my life. He is an amazing man, and his mentorship made all the difference in the world to me during my time at ONU.
