Local pharmacist honors staff with state-wide award


SYLACAUGA, Ala – Marble City Pharmacy owner Jared Johnson served as President of the Alabama Pharmacy Association (APA) for the 2016-17 calendar year.

Each year, the president of the APA  awards the Mitchel C. Rotholz President’s Award. According to the APA, this award is presented to recognize outstanding voluntary contributions to both the Alabama Pharmacy Association and the profession of pharmacy.

However, Johnson told the president of the APA normally awards the Mitchel C. Rothholz’ President’s Award to a mentor or someone who was vital to their success as a pharmacist at the association’s annual convention.

As president of the APA last year, Johnson had the duty of awarding this year at the 136th Annual Convention held at the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort in Destin.

Johnson, however, did not award the honor to any particular person, but to the entire Marble City Pharmacy staff.

He explained being president of the APA requires many hours out of the office. According to Johnson, his staff’s hard work and diligence made it possible for him to be out of the office and serve as president of the APA. “This pharmacy ran flawlessly while I was out of the office,” he said. “I am proud of my staff and they deserved to be honored.”

Marble City Pharmacy is owned and operated by brothers Jared and Jacob Johnson. It is one of the leading medicinal suppliers in the area and has been serving the people of Sylacauga and the surrounding areas since 2003.
