Clint Boone

Growing up, Clint Boone wanted to enter the medical field so he could help people.

“Pharmacy seemed like a really good fit,” because the local pharmacists were practically always available, said Boone, 27, who was raised in Conway.

He attended the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences’ College of Pharmacy, where he was elected president of UAMS student government for the 2008-09 school year.

For a class project, Boone and a few of his classmates developed the business plan for Cornerstone Specialty Pharmacy. The business plan was selected for a national competition. “We didn’t win, but it was still a great learning experience,” he said.

Boone and his friends started Cornerstone in Little Rock while Boone was still in pharmacy school. Cornerstone opened another location in Fayetteville in 2011 and has grown to 12 employees.

Boone’s business philosophy is “to make sure we go out of our way to take care of our patients, [and] try to go the extra step with every patient,” he said. “We always thought that if we could take care of our patients, then the business will be sustainable.”

Away from the business, Boone volunteers at the Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency. He also is on the board of directors of the Arkansas Pharmacists Association as its District 1 president.
