Richard T. Carbray ’75 (PHR) of Rocky Hill, Conn., has been re-elected by UConn alumni to a second four-year term on the University of Connecticut Board of Trustees. Carbray is the owner/pharmacist of Apex Pharmacy and Home Care Center in Hamden and graduated in 1975 from UConn with a degree in pharmacy.
During his first term on the board, he has served on the Academic Affairs, Financial Affairs, Institutional Advancement, Honors and Awards, Joint Audit and Compliance, and Building, Grounds and Environment committees. Since 2013, he also has held an appointment on the UConn Health board of directors, and serves as chair of its Building, Grounds and Environment Committee.
“For the last four years, I have had the privilege and honor of serving as a trustee for the University of Connecticut,” Carbray said in his nomination statement. “During that time, the board has diligently worked on the development of the most complete capital improvement plan for UConn’s physical needs for the next 25 years. This is the largest plan of its kind that the University has ever undertaken.”
“I have witnessed firsthand, and actively participated in, the steady rise of UConn’s reputation as one of the top 20 public universities in the country,” he added. “With the addition of Next Generation Connecticut, UConn’s reputation will be further enhanced.”
Carbray’s involvement with the University goes well beyond his tenure as an alumni trustee.
He was a member of the UConn Alumni Association’s board of directors for seven years, serving as the board’s president from 2004 to 2006. The 1998 Pharmacist of the Year as recognized by the Connecticut Pharmacist Association, he was named a distinguished alumnus of the School of Pharmacy in 2004, and received the University’s Alumni Service Award in 2010.
