Adderall Nation: Perfectly Dangerous

Teaching her Advanced General Psychology class, Dr. Holly Brand explains the dos and don’ts of interviews. Brand underwent radiation every morning of the fall 2016 semester, followed by a full day of teaching at MBU. The incredible effort won her the respect of her students, and also the university’s Distinguished Faculty Member Award.

Alexis Womble keeps a contagious smile on her face even though she is no longer able to protect the goal she has been used to guarding as a lacrosse player for several years, as she has learned to “let go and let God.”
