Monday Mission, 4/4/11
Bruce Foster is the director of external relations and admissions for the McWhorter School of Pharmacy. Because McWhorter draws students from throughout the United States (and the world), Bruce often greets prospective students who know nothing of Birmingham. When Bruce realized that one recent guest from Minnesota wanted to gain an appreciation for our community, but was going to take his tour via taxi, he loaded the young man's bags in his own vehicle, acquainted him with the great sites of Birmingham (with sparkling commentary, no doubt), and deposited him safely at the airport for his flight home.
The world is better because of Bruce Foster.
