Walgreen’s Gives FAMU Scholarship Money

January 22nd, 2008 by flanews

A major drug store chain is lending a helping hand to the state’s only public historically black university.  Walgreen’s is donating 250 thousand dollars to the Florida A&M University College of Pharmacy for scholarship programs.  University President James Ammons says the donation is sign that FAMU is back on track, even as lawmakers look at slashing more than 2 billion dollars from the state budget.

“Because of the tremendous relationship we’ve had with Walgreen’s over the past decade we are now able to continue the momentum in the college of pharmacy despite of all of the cuts that are going on,” Ammons said.

More than 400 FAMU College of Pharmacy graduates work for Walgreen’s.
