Concerning her involvement with WTPA, Sarah states: As a three-time scholarship recipient during pharmacy school, I had the great pleasure of becoming acquainted with WTPA. My involvement in WTPA has allowed me the opportunity to learn and stay informed, to build relationships and enjoy the comradery of outstanding colleagues, and to maintain contact with and support pharmacy students. WTPA embodies West Texas values and the highest principles of the pharmacy profession. It is an honor to be able to give back to an organization that has done so much for me and continues to do so for many others.
