Mother and Daughter Receive Pharmacy Technology Diploma | Schools
DUBLIN, GA - Oconee Fall Line Technical College is pleased to announce the graduates of the 2012 Pharmacy Technology program, including Angelia Whiggum and her daughter, Helen Whiggum-Clark.
Angelia and Helen graduated the program together and are employed by Rhine Discount Drugs in Rhine, Georgia, where they each completed their practicums. Helen is also employed at Abbeville Drug Company in Abbeville, GA.
“We studied together, worked together and helped each other through the program,” said Angelia. “Any kind of emotional support is welcome when you are going back to school; but since Helen entered college right out of high school, she helped me so much get back into the practice of studying.”
“I am excited that so many of the 2012 grads already employed,” said OFTC Pharmacy Technology Instructor Jack Shephard. “With the State of Georgia requiring technicians to be educated and registered, the demand for our graduates is increasing.”
