Name: Larry Wheeler

Age: 65

City of residence: Victoria

Current title: Walgreens store manager

First job: When I was 12, I worked on a harvest crew, driving the combine and wheat truck. But my first real job was with Walgreens.

What it taught me: I learned to be responsible for my company, the money and the employees. I also learned you don't have to accept things the way they are. If you challenge the status quo, you can make change happen.
