      “The education that I received while obtaining my Chemistry degree has proven to be worth more to me than I can express in words. Dr. Hiebert and Dr. Heyen 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.
