The Presidential Award is presented to a member of the Fruth support staff who has provided the stores with the most help and assistance in 2022.
Fruth Pharmacy chose Paula as a 2022 Presidential Award recipient for answering the call for store support.

Covid made staffing difficult in many Fruth locations.

Paula now wears the title of District Manager.
