Robert J. Ireland Scholarship

Robert J. Ireland enjoyed a full life of service, music, poetry, science, family, and joy. He received a B.S. degree from the University of Illinois College of Pharmacy in Chicago. He was a proud member of the Rho Pi Phi Pharmacy Fraternity. He then served in the US Army, which included work at the outpatient pharmacy at Brook Army Hospital in Fort Sam in Houston Texas. Bob loved the healing and community aspects of his work. Dispensing jokes and cheers along with medicine made him
a popular and well-loved member of the community. For many years, he owned and operated Ireland's Prescription Pharmacy at 7141 South Jeffery Blvd. He then continued to pursue in other neighborhoods across the city. Bob's stewardship and commitment to the community was displayed in his daily practice of pharmacy. He loved being a pharmacist and he loved music.
