Branson, Missouri – Gregg Garland, Walgreens district manager, recently was handed the Missouri Community College Association’s MoWINs Grant Partnership Award by Mineral Area College’s vice president of college affairs, Gil Kennon. Garland has played an instrumental role in the development of the Pharmacy Technician Certificate Program offered at Mineral Area College through the MoSTEMWINs program.

The relationship between the college and Walgreens began when Garland was a store manager at the 24-hour Walgreens in Farmington.

He and the managing pharmacist at the time met with college staff to arrange clinical rotations for students participating in the Pharmacy Technician program. He has also helped to provide the students with mock interviews. Now in his position as District Manager he has helped the college expand its partnership with Walgreens throughout the Southeast Missouri area.
