Emilie Thomas

Emilie Thomas, president of the Class of 2023, hails from Aiken, South Carolina and used to be a coach for Carolina Elite Stallion Cheerleading, which was a great experience. When she started working in a pharmacy, she noticed how much it felt like a team with the pharmacist as the coach. She chose MUSC because of how close-knit the students were and how much opportunity there is for networking and leadership/growth.

Marley Young ’21, student coordinator of the College’s American Pharmacists Month “We are MUSC Pharmacy” campaign, already knows where she’ll be when Pharmacists Month rolls around again – practicing pharmacy at Stuckey Pharmacy in Hemingway, S.C. She’s worked there since 2017 and they have already offered her a position when she graduates. While she is fortunate to already have her job lined up, her many accomplishments and leadership experience at MUSC may mean it is Stuckey that’s lucky.

She’s hoping to go into psychiatry and work with recovering substance abusers.
