TRT Leadership Endowment

The Thomas R. Temple Leadership Endowment was established in 2011 to recognize the leadership and commitment of Thomas R. Temple, who served as IPA’s CEO and Executive Vice President from 1979 to 2011.
Tom served the profession in Iowa for over three decades and was respected across the country for his collaboration, forward-thinking vision, and tenacity that led Iowa to the forefront of pharmacy practice. Tom’s vision of a leadership development program that would train young pharmacists for future leadership and engagement sparked the creation of the Leadership Pharmacy Conference in 1989.

It was Tom's wish to create a new scholarship with memorial contributions through the endowment to support student pharmacists at Drake University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences and the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy. The Thomas & Cathy Temple Scholarship will award two scholarships to student pharmacists annually. These scholarships will be presented to student representatives serving on the IPA Board of Trustees.

In honor of his legacy, memorial contributions to the Thomas R. Temple Leadership Endowment will support the new Thomas & Cathy Temple Scholarship.
