The Danville, Kentucky Campus recently recognized Walgreens as a Distinguished Community Employer due to their support of American National University students in providing externship and employment opportunities.
Dora Patrick, who is a pharmacy technician instructor at the Danville Campus and a Walgreens employee, accepted the plaque for Walgreens. Dora is instrumental in assisting pharmacy tech students with externship placements. Dora holds a bachelor’s degree from Morehead State University and a pharmacy technician diploma from American National University’s Pikeville Campus.
“Walgreens’ partnership with American National University has been a tremendous benefit for my students and pharmacy tech graduates. I am so proud of the hands-on experience that Walgreens has provided to the students--from that one-on-one customer interaction to helping them learn how the pharmacy roles have evolved over the past several years,” Dora said. “Walgreens pharmacies have hired several of the graduates to help them get their career started in the pharmacy practice, which has been so wonderful. In this day and time, jobs are so hard to come by, and to see the value in our students, and offer them a position right out of school, assures us that we are doing everything we can to ensure their education is the best possible.”
