Hughes – Fisher Endowed Scholarship in Pharmacy

This endowment is established in memory of Lewis Clarke Hughes (‘23 Pharmacy) and Robert Lee Fisher (‘52 Pharmacy) and his wife, Shirley Hughes Fisher, daughter of Lewis Hughes (‘53 Pharmacy, University of Arizona).

Lewis Hughes owned and operated Monarch Drug Company in Tacoma, Wash., while Bob and Shirley Fisher owned Fishers’ Pharmacy in Kennewick, Wash., and Crown Drug in Pasco, Wash. Because the family believes strongly in the importance of independent community pharmacy, they have established this endowment. It is their desire that not only the family legacy, but also the legacy of independent retail pharmacy will be perpetuated with this gift.

The children of Robert and Shirley Fisher, Brad Fisher and Stacie Fisher Hamilton (also grandchildren of Lewis Hughes) are proud to establish this endowment in memory of their loved ones. Brad Fisher graduated from WSU in 1979 with a

B.A. in business administration. His sister, Stacie Fisher Hamilton, also graduated from WSU in 1981 with a B.A. in business administration. Presently they both reside with their families in the Tri-Cities.

The distributions from this fund shall be used to provide a scholarship for a WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (CPPS) student who has expressed an interest in independent community pharmacy. Selection will be made by the CPPS scholarship committee or at the discretion of the dean.
