Stokes Finds That Perseverance Pays Off | Schools
DUBLIN - After working for almost 20 years as an administrative assistant, Amanda Stokes thought that it was time to make a career change.
In September of 2009 she decided it was time to go to College and get an education in something that she found interesting and rewarding…Pharmacy Technology.
Stokes will tell you that completing this program was no easy task. It required a great deal of studying and time in the classroom and offsite at her clinical rotations in Dublin at Buy Smart Pharmacy and Fairview Park Hospital.
“It was difficult,” said Amanda. “I learned that anything worth doing is worth working hard for. My instructor,Jack Shepard, encouraged me to stick with the program and that this programwould change my life for the better. And he was right.”
Amanda graduated from Oconee Fall Line Technical College in November of 2011 as an Honor Graduate. She is currently employed at Buy-Smart Pharmacy in Dublin and also works on an as needed base as a Pharmacy Technician at Fairview Park Hospital.
