Name: Larry Wheeler
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.
