Gregory Skedros Legacy

We recently talked to Gregory Skedros as part of our Legacy series here at the College of Pharmacy. Gregory Skedros is an alumnus who graduated from the University of Utah College of Pharmacy in 1950, the college's first-ever graduating class. Skedros is an extremely valuable asset to the College of Pharmacy, as he paints a living picture of what the school was like during its conception.   However, Skedros was not just a pharmacist during his 90 years of life and counting. He is a veteran, restaurant-owner, botanist, athlete, former soda jerk, Greek Festival chairman, a father, husband, a choiralier, and much more. Whew! His countless interests coupled with his hard-working demeanor has made Skedros one of the most unique individuals that has hailed from the College of Pharmacy (and perhaps Utah at large…)
