Known as "Doc" to most students past and present, Dr. Gary Dickerson is actively engaged in the Faculty AIM Hei Student Mentoring Program. AIM Hei, along with his challenging classroom duties, keep him occupied on campus. Off campus, Doc and his wife, Janet, are grandparents to five active and very young grandchildren. He has no plans in the immediate future for retirement from Heidelberg or Rusty Vinyl, the local classic rock band for which he has been the lead singer since 1992. Family, Heidelberg and music are the three passions that drive and define him.
