Jim and Jan Hrncir of Irving, Texas, recently donated $3,500 to Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s College of Pharmacy in Weatherford.

The gift comes as part of the SWOSU College of Pharmacy $1 million FOCUS campaign, which includes raising money for academic program enrichment, scholarships and the College of Pharmacy’s museum.

The Hrncirs are owners of Las Colinas Pharmacy.

“SWOSU’s College of Pharmacy is rare in that it offered encouragement and preparation for pharmacy students like me, interested in owning an independent pharmacy,” said Jim Hrncir. “I recognize other colleges’ students—while sound clinically—are not fostered with the entrepreneurial spirit cultivated at SWOSU.”

Jim, a 1979 graduate of SWOSU and a product of Amarillo Tascosa High School, currently has a radio show in Texas that features topics related to integrated medicine. He frequently gives seminars and consultations on various topics and has been featured several times on the Dr. Phil Show. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Texas and Texas Tech Schools of Pharmacy. He is active in the Irving Rotary Club and enjoys golf and bird hunting.

His wife, Jan Burkhalter Hrncir, is a former Miss Southwestern and Miss Hobart. While at SWOSU, she was Phi Delta Theta Sweetheart and was a member of the Southwestern Singers. The Hrncirs have one daughter, Taylor.
