Darrell Craven - APAA President

In June of 2017, former Auburn Pharmacy Alumni Association President, Bobby Giles, passed his role to Darrell Craven.

Craven graduated from the Harrison College of Pharmacy in 1982. He began serving on the HCOP Campaign Committee in 2013 and on the Auburn Pharmacy Alumni Affiliate’s Board of Directors in 2015.

“I am honored to serve as the newly elected APAA president and am eager to remain actively engaged with HCOP, its students, alumni and faculty/staff. I look forward to all that will be accomplished throughout my term to promote HCOP, connect alumni back with the college, and assist in raising scholarship dollars for current students. APAA is able to support HCOP through the memberships and donations of its alumni. I invite all to join us as we advocate for our profession and enable current HCOP students to fulfill their role as the next generation of pharmacists.”

Craven’s career has been dedicated to the pharmacy profession. He has worked for Eli Lilly and Company, Sanofi and now works as the Associate Director of Retail Trade Relations at Alkermes, a biopharmaceutical company that focuses on central nervous system diseases. In 2013, Craven and his family established The Craven Family Endowed Scholarship.

The APAA president’s term of service is two years with the potential to be re-elected for an additional term. As president of APAA, Craven will work alongside the Office of Advancement to raise funds for scholarships, assist students with convention travel, advocate for the pharmacy profession and promote the alumni tailgates.
