The education that I received while obtaining my Chemistry degree has proven to be worth more to me than I can express in words. My professors were not only great mentors in class, but excellent role models in both the Tabor and Hillsboro communities. They gave me the background that I have come to rely upon in completing my doctorate in pharmacy. I continue to be friends with both of them and they continue to give me advice as I grow as a scientist and clinician. – Morissa Friesen (g’02), Pharm.D.
