e the pleasure of mentoring and coaching other technicians in their goals and achievements." Henson is a recipient of the Methodist Hospital Germantown's Extra Mile Award, Power of One Award, and Associate of the Year Award, among other honors.

Rico Powell, CPhT, is Pharmacy Technician Manager at Methodist Healthcare and PRN Technician at St. Francis Hospital, both in Memphis, TN. Mr. Powell's efforts in pharmacy automations have enhanced the safety of medication being prepared in the hospital setting, and helped transform CPhTs to vital members of his hospital's healthcare team. "Pharmacy practice models are constantly changing, allowing pharmacy technicians to take on greater responsibility," said Mr. Powell. "This enables the pharmacist to be more involved with clinical components of a patient's care. Medication safety is also a key part of the CPhT's scope of practice, and technicians are often the first eyes to identify potential errors." Mr. Powell's efforts have focused on building trust and teamwork among 42 technicians.

PTCB launched the inaugural PTCB CPhT of the Year© Program in July. More than 550 CPhTs were nominated from across all pharmacy settings. PTCB selected eight candidates to appear on the online ballot and invited public online voting to select the honoree and finalists. MSgt. Hughes, Ms. Henson, and Mr. Powell will be recognized at a ceremony in Washington, DC on October 29.  The other five semifinalists were Jennifer Comford, Heather Krehl, Stephanie Rice-Erlenbusch, Lauren Seals, and Sheila Woodruff.
