“Dr. Scheidegger has been my biggest inspiration at BC. She is always there for me personally and academically. She challenges me in everything I do and pushes me to places I didn’t know I could go. It is a true honor to be called Dr. Scheidegger’s student and I can’t wait for her to place a hood around my neck at graduation!
