Chair’s Letter – January 2020
Happy 2020 All!
I moved to North County from Helena, AR to attend pharmacy school in 2003. I began my pharmacy career at the Ferguson Walmart, then on to Bridgeton. I took my first pharmacy manager’s job at the Chesterfield location and when I heard there was going to be a Florissant store, I jumped at the opportunity to serve here. North County has a special place in my heart because it’s the only place I’ve lived since moving to St. Louis; there was no question where I was going to continue to live and begin my family. North County is strong and full of delightful and unique people, places, and opportunities and is a place that we can all be proud of. The Chamber helps to ensure that we remain connected, strong, and viable. We are not a governmental agency; we are a group of neighbors working together for one common goal. That goal is the longevity and prosperity of North St. Louis County. I am both humbled and excited to be entrusted with this position and I look forward to working with all of you as we move into this new decade. Our Board of Directors is a great group of stakeholders, from a variety of backgrounds and places.
Rick Dorsey – Vice-Chair
Carl Lathan– Secretary
