Ilaina S. Andrews has found working in the dean’s office of McWhorter School of Pharmacy a rewarding experience. Andrews, a native of Andalusia, Ala., worked as a sales representative for Armstrong World Industries, marketing commercial insulation to contractors in territories from St. Charles, La., to Tallahassee, Fla. She has lived in New Orleans, La., and Houston, Texas, but has called Homewood home for the past 28 years. Married with three daughters and a grandson, Andrews enjoys gardening. She strives to hold true to the teachings of Hebrew 12:1–3. "[It] is a Scripture that speaks to me on how I should meet life’s challenges by persevering in running the race God has marked out for me. I’m not a runner, but I know it takes perseverance to finish the race."
