Walgreens, one of America’s largest retail drugstore chains, renewed its support of student success and inclusion within the South Dakota State University College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions through a $5,000 donation presented Feb. 1 to Dean Dan Hansen.
The presentation was made by Jason Frederick, district manager with Walgreens in Sioux Falls, and Curt Orchard, health care supervisor for Walgreens’ Minnesota South region in Roseville.
The donation funds two $2,500 scholarships. The 2022-23 recipients of these awards are: Hyunjun Cho, of Bakersfield, California, who is in her first year of pharmacy school; and Amy Cockrum, of Sioux Falls, who is in her third year of pharmacy school.
Hansen said, “For many years, Walgreens has shown a strong commitment to supporting South Dakota State University and our historic land-grant mission of access. These scholarships support our efforts to expand opportunities for all students in our profession.”
