"It is essential we remember and honor the contributions all of our frontline healthcare workers made, but it is especially rewarding for the College to give this award to the Walbergs," President Susan Traverso, Ph.D., said. "We teamed with them to use the Passavant Center as a vaccination site which opened the door for thousands of people to get their vaccinations. This award symbolizes so much about the spirit of community and connection and the important relationship between the region and the College.
The Walbergs held several first- and second-dose vaccination clinics at the Passavant Center as well as other locations in the region.
The Walbergs purchased Jamestown Pharmacy in 1999 from Bretton's parents and have continued to grow their business throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio. In 2014, Walberg Family Pharmacies won the prestigious Pharmacy of the Year Award for the Northeast Region from McKesson Pharmaceuticals, and during the same year, Bretton was selected as a Top Pharmacist Entrepreneur of the Year by Pharmacy Times. The Walberg family has grown Walberg Family Pharmacies from one location to 11.
