Multiple Teams · Alumni Spotlight! Former Pirate Student-Athlete Joshua Sumner


Congratulations to 2013 Pirate graduate Joshua Sumner who recently completed his Doctor of Pharmacy degree! Sumner completed requirements in 7 years instead of 8, graduating Clemson in 2017 and the University of South Carolina School of Pharmacy in May, 2020 (graduating Cum Laude).

While attending Lumberton Senior High School, Sumner played football all four years moving to varsity as a freshman to be included in the state playoffs. He also represented the Pirates on the tennis court. Activities outside of school also kept Sumner busy and involved in the community. He was very active in the youth group at his church and became an Eagle Scout.

Sumner is now employed by Brisson Drugs in St. Pauls, NC. Again, congratulations Josh! Pirate Pride!
