Although we do not dispense actual medications or perform “normal” pharmacy technician duties, CorVel saw the importance of having certified pharmacy technicians on our staff, to better educate our employees in understanding various medi...cations and therapies, calculations to better verify correct dosing and really just the general knowledge and benefit that I know I got out of the experience.
I can definitely speak for all of the CPhT’s in our office, when I say that we are extremely appreciative in CorVel putting us through a professional course and then also getting us ready to take the national PTCE to become ">PTCB certified.
We currently have 35 CPhT’s in our office (not all are in the photo unfortunately) and we have a class of eight studying now to take the PTCE within the next 30 days and another twelve lined up to start an official pharmacy technician workshop that is coordinated by The Ohio State University before the end of the year.

In an audit report presented to the Mineral Area College Board of Trustees, the Park Hills-based community college received a clean bill of health from C Curt Boyer of Boyer & Associates, PC.
"With respect to the auditor's report, our opinions were all clean," Boyer said. "We didn't have any material weaknesses or significant deficiencies that we felt the need to report to you at this time, so that's always good. This particular year, ended June 30, 2016, the operating results were somewhat of a challenge from a cash standpoint, as you are all aware.
"Some reductions in enrollment may be best described in what happened with our federal aid. Our federal aid in 2016 was about $12.7 million, which in the year before, was about $15 million. So, all that made the task at hand challenging for the fiscal year 2016. Your cash flow for that year was down about $14,000, but on the accrual basis, we ended up the year with an increase in net assets of around a million dollars. So, from a financial standpoint, it was a successful year considering the challenges that you had before you."
In her 2017 spring semester enrollment report, Dean of Students Jean Merrill-Doss noted that there is a slight dip in student enrollment compared to last year.
"This is a little update from the original information that went out in your packet," she said. "Currently, as of this morning, we have 1,647 students enrolled and about 18,000 credit hours. That is down a little bit — about 100 students and about 600 credit hours from the same time last year — but as you know it's just kind of a yo-yo. Tomorrow we might be up and then we'll be down again. We're off to a good start and we'll have an extra week in the spring, in January, to enroll students — so that will be one week longer than last year."
Facilities Director Barry Wilfong reported that the construction project at the Fine Arts Theatre had been completed.
MAC President Dr. Steve Kurtz announced that school employees Richard Flotron III, assistant professorLaw Enforcement Academy director; and Dean of Students Merrill-Doss were honored by the Missouri Community College Association (MCCA) at its 52nd Annual Convention held Nov. 2 in Branson.
Flotron received MCCA’s Administrative Professional Leadership Award. Kurtz said, “He was chosen from thousands of peers across the state for his outstanding leadership, innovation and support of MAC.”
Flotron has been a member of the Mineral Area College team since 2002.
“He is not only responsible for MAC's Law Enforcement Academy, but teaches in the Criminal Justice program, is past president of Faculty Forum, is pursuing his doctorate in Higher Education Leadership and initiated a campus innovation committee to proactively shape MAC's future,” Kurtz said.
To serve the community and improve communication between police organizations and citizens, Flotron began a free 8-week citizen police academy this summer.
He writes a blog for educators published on the Association for Career and Technical Education website, and he was selected to be one of nine, nationwide Fellows, representing Region III in the ACTE National Leadership Fellow program.
Merrill-Doss received MCCA’s Senior Service Award. She began teaching fashion design and apparel merchandising at MAC in the summer of 1985. In 1998, she was part of the planning for the Tourism Education and Information Center on campus. As director of tourism, she developed youth programs, built a Missouri resource library and hosted several special events. She later served as dean of Community and Workforce Development and became dean of students in 2003. She is very active in the community serving on numerous local boards and councils.
“MCCA’s Senior Service Award is presented annually to a long-serving employee from each of Missouri’s community collegescampuses,” said Kurtz. “Recipients are recommended for the award by their campus presidentchancellor. To receive this award, the employee must have worked at a community college for 20 years or more.”
Also honored at the convention was Walgreen’s manager, Gregg Garland, who received the Missouri Community College Association’s MoWINs Grant Partnership Award.
“Garland has played an instrumental role in the development of the Pharmacy Technician Certificate Program offered at Mineral Area College through the MoSTEMWINs program,” said Kurtz. “The relationship between the college and Walgreens began when Garland was a store manager at the 24-hour Walgreens in Farmington.
“He and the managing pharmacist at the time met with college staff to arrange clinical rotations for students participating in the Pharmacy Technician program. He has also helped to provide the students with mock interviews.”
in his position as district manager, Kurtz said Garland has helped the college expand its partnership with Walgreens throughout the southeast Missouri area
Christian DeShazo received the Missouri Community College Association’s Student Leadership Award. He is active in Phi Theta Kappa, having assisted with fundraising, and playing a key role in the chapter’s Honors in Action Project this year.
