Congratulations to our newest board of director members!
Jonathon L. Anderson ’11
Jonathon Anderson is a pharmacy manager at Walgreens, where he has worked since he was 17 years old. In this role, he manages his pharmacy team and promotes the business and wellness potential of community pharmacy. He also is a preceptor for 4th – and 6th – year students.
Anderson serves on the African-American Alumni and Student Chapter, an affinity group under the Alumni Association. The committee plans events to engage alumni and establish supportive relationships between African-American students and alumni. Anderson helped plan and emceed the Alumni Association’s Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner event in February.
“When reading the charge of the Board, I found these statements stood out to me: ‘Acting as an advocate for the association and the College’ and ‘Identifying, cultivating and recruiting future leaders for the Alumni Association.’ Promoting the College through service, events, and teaching has always been passions of mine. I have enjoyed many of the events the association has put on over the last few years, and since my graduation I have advocated to my peers, both current students and alumni alike, that they should continue to give back to the institution that was such a large part of our lives. I would love to be a part of the board that provides opportunities that would allow pharmacists and student pharmacists to see what a great place STLCOP is and can be.”
Josh Boudeman ’11
St. Louis, Mo.
Josh Boudeman is a pharmacy manager with Walgreens where he helps people get, stay, and live well by managing his employees in a patient-centered and profitable environment. Boudeman has been with Walgreens for six years and previously worked as a student pharmacist in a hospital.
Boudeman is member of the Young Alumni Committee, an affinity group under the Alumni Association, which helps maintain or build relationships among alumni who graduated within the past 10 years and the association. He has served on this committee since it was created in 2011, and over the years he has successfully engaged young alumni by helping strategize events and marketing plans, which have increased young alumni attendance and giving. He was also a member of the Student Alumni Association while at STLCOP.
“I enjoyed my time at STLCOP and am excited to see its ever-increasing presence in the St Louis healthcare scene. I would like to bring my perspective as a young alumnus to the board. The profession of pharmacy is constantly evolving, and I would like to help the school maintain its focus on the future. When I was in school I didn't really know who the board was or what they did. Now I can see that my experiences were influenced by their actions, and I would like to give back anything I may have to offer.”
Evan Schnur ’12
Evan Schnur is a senior manager of health and wellness operations at Walmart. His job responsibilities include oversight of communication and communication strategy from headquarters to the 65,000+ pharmacy and optical associates who work at Walmart and operate in the field. He also provides support to innovations in a project oversight role. Previously, he was an executive fellow with the National Association of Chain Drug Stores. Schnur is a member of the Pharmacy Quality Alliance, California Pharmacists Association, and National Association of Chain Drug Stores.
During his six years at STLCOP, Schnur was involved with the Student Alumni Association, and he helped start a sixth-year tradition of establishing a class gift as co-chair of the 2012 Class Gift.
“Serving on the Alumni Association’s board of directors will give me an opportunity to provide a voice for my fellow young alumni in the direction that the association takes. I would be honored to represent all alumni, both recent and not-as-recent graduates to ensure the association is meeting your needs and exceeding your expectations. If chosen to be a director, I want to focus on opportunities to capture engagement early on – as students and young alumni - to create lifetime relationships with each other and the College beyond our years on campus.”
David P. Frye ’68
After graduating from STLCOP, David Frye continued his education at Webster University, where he received a master’s degree in health facilities management in 1977.

“It gives me great honor to be selected as a nominee for the alumni board of directors. I am looking forward to getting back into a position of mentoring and helping with the vision of the College. It would be a great pleasure to give my expertise again as I thoroughly enjoyed my previous time on the board and hope to be able to serve again.”
