Many of us experienced a sense of loss when Dr. Chuck Sands left his faculty position at Samford a few years ago to join the administration of California Baptist University in Riverside.
A Samford graduate (and the son of our former pharmacy dean, Dr. Charlie Sands), Chuck was a highly respected member of our faculty. One thing led to another for Dr. Sands and he is now serving as Provost at CBU. A few days ago a friend commented to me of Chuck’s growing influence in the world of higher education. We still miss him—but we are grateful that Samford played a small role in his preparation for life beyond Birmingham.
The world is better because of the significant contributions of Samford graduates.
