Local Business Provides Career Opportunities for Students and Graduates
Apr 20, 2015
The Cincinnati Campus recently presented Walgreens Pharmacy with American National University’s Distinguished Community Employer Award. Store manager Kevin Hoppins, store pharmacist Jason Dorsey, Cincinnati regional pharmacy supervisor Brett Kovalyak, and the regional store manager Sandy Reeves were all on hand to accept the award.
Walgreens has served the community for over 40 years in the Roselawn neighborhood of Cincinnati. The pharmacy’s presence in the neighborhood has not only brought health care, preventative care, and wellness to the community, but also employment opportunities for community members, including students and graduates of American National University’s Cincinnati Campus.
Over the years, Walgreens Pharmacy has given upcoming pharmacy technician graduates an opportunity to gain first-hand experience through externships and has offered employment opportunities upon graduation.
Store manager Kevin Hoppins began his career with Walgreens 13 years ago. "I am very honored to receive the award and happy to give back to the community I help serve," he stated. "We here at Walgreens are excited about the partnership with American National University and the opportunity to help pharmacy technicians begin their careers.”
In addition to providing externship and employment opportunities, Walgreens continually participates in campus health fairs, flu shot clinics, and job fairs.
