A magna cum laude biology graduate of The Citadel, Military College of South Carolina, Terrell “Terry” Herring serves as president of commercial operations for Mission Pharmacal. An avid sports fan, Terrell “Terry” Herring supports the National Hockey League’s (NHL) Philadelphia Flyers.

Seeking to bolster its organizational depth through college free agency, the Flyers signed Union College forward Michael Vecchione in March. A native of Massachusetts, Vecchione played for the United States Hockey League’s Tri-City Storm from 2011-13 but went undrafted in the NHL. Through four seasons with Union, however, he recorded 71 goals and 105 assists, making him the college’s all-time leading scorer.

A Hobey Baker finalist as the top player in the NCAA, Vecchione posted career highs in goals and assists in 2016-17 with 29 and 34 respectively. He was considered one of the top available college free agents and, just four days after signing with Philadelphia, made his NHL debut in a game against the New Jersey Devils.
