Garner named Entrepreneur of the Year

The Lawrence County Branch NAACP has chosen Roneasa Garner as the recipient of its Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2022.
Garner, owner of Hudson Pharmacy in Monticello, is the first African American woman to purchase an established business of its kind, according to a news release from the organization.
“We applaud her and her staff for displaying an unswerving commitment to the citizens of Monticello during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have never stopped, and continue to radiate hospitality,” NAACP representatives said in presenting the award.
