Published twice a year, The Heidelberg Bulletin includes features about alumni achievements as well as news and events from across campus.
Dr. Bill Kimberlin, MAC ’98, has stared pure evil in the face. A lot. And he lived to write about it. Earlier this year, Kimberlin’s book, Watch Me Die, was published. It is a first-of-its-kind, first-hand account of Ohio’s death row and the state’s execution process. For the book, Kimberlin was invited behind prison walls and into the lives of death-row inmates – some of “the worst of the worst.” No bars. No shackles. No chains. And nothing like television.
Jill Lanzinger, ’01, knew at a young age she wanted to pursue a career in law, and she enrolled at Heidelberg with that goal. While the sum of her Heidelberg education prepared her well, she recognizes the impact one professor and one skill can have on a career.
Dr. Rick Mahon, ’05, always knew an office setting wasn’t for him. That knowledge combined with an inclination to help people led him to pursue a career in medicine.
“I love being in a hospital and moving around,” Mahon says. “I like the chaos to an extent.”
The clock of life never stops. Time is fleeting.
I am constantly trying to time things just right. I am not perfect at life-balance. Time gets away so fast. If only I could get things to slow down. This is not a new thing for me. I have always tried to squeeze more time into every day.
Sometimes we don’t know where life is going to take us, or what people and places will influence us. Maurice Dickson, x’64, wasn’t able to finish his degree at Heidelberg, but that didn’t stop Heidelberg from staying with him.
“Heidelberg resonated with me,” he says. “I still remember my classes in College Hall and all the Greek events.”
