Halethorpe Pharmacy Owner Honored by UM

George Garmer was inducted into the Dean's Hall of Fame for Distinguished Community Pharmacists at an event last week.

The owner of Halethorpe Pharmacy was honored last week by his alma mater.

The University of Maryland's National Community Pharmacists Association student chapter honored George Garmer, an Essex resident who also owns Independent Drug in Middle River, by inducting him and an employee into the Dean’s Hall of Fame for Distinguished Community Pharmacists.

The award was presented at the group's annual banquet at Martin's West on Friday. In an email, Garmer called the honor a "great surprise."

Sherry Butler, a clinical pharmacy specialist at Halethorpe Pharmacy, was also honored.

A 1991 graduate of UM's school of pharmacy, Garmer became co-owner of Halethorpe Pharmacy in 2000 and owner of Independent Drug in 2004, according to a feature on the university's site.
