Milwaukee native Dr. Latricia Yvonne Donlow recently achieved her dream of becoming a pharmacist when she graduated Cum Laude with a Doctorate of Pharmacy (PharmD) from Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science (COPPS).
Florida A&M is a Historical Black College/ University (HBCU).
“I want to thank God for blessing me with family (and church family) who contributed tremendously to my future with their love, time, support and prayers,” said Donlow after receiving her degree. “I would also like to thank my FAMU COPPS family and friends who set a motto for all of the pharmacy students and expected “Exceptional Excellence Every time (E3).”
The daughter of Karen and Willard Donlow, and the granddaughter of Savannah Sledge, Donlow attended MPS’ Brown Street Academy, where her love for music and sports became evident immediately. She was also an honor roll student at Brown Street.
Donlow also attended Steuben Middle Schools and Rufus King International Baccalaureate High School. At both schools, she was an active student who maintained outstanding grades.
Donlow also participated in the Strive Media Institute, Top Teens of America and continued a legacy of family participation in the Milwaukee chapter of the AKA’s annual Debutante Cotillion.
