John Adams, '58

Jun 26, 2018

John Q. Adams’s love for Heidelberg is as big as the state of Texas. Whether in his distinguished 50-year career in the pharmaceutical industry or in service and philanthropy to Heidelberg, John has stood head and shoulders above many with his wisdom, foresight and generosity.

Melissa is thankful for the career path that had its foundation at Heidelberg. As a communication and political science double major, she jumped into the arena while a student, working for a small-market radio station and writing for a weekly newspaper.

It was all in a day’s work for this busy 1994 graduate, who balances a hectic career with an equally hectic home and family life, yet understands the value of his gift of giving back to Heidelberg students.
