Preparing a unique breed of medical researchers
Tracy Hickman and Chad Munger are a Spartan family. They both graduated from MSU. Both sets of parents went to MSU, too, and it doesn’t stop there. Even their dogs — two Newfoundlands — have a Spartan connection: Banks is named after the banks of the Red Cedar.
It is safe to say MSU had a profound impact on Hickman and Munger, who own Mammoth Distilling in northern Michigan.
In 2018, they established the Dewey Memorial Endowed Scholarship, named after their late Newfoundland, Dewey. The $1.3 million endowment will help recruit top students to the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine’s dual-degree program, which educates, trains and prepares tomorrow’s clinician-scientists to help address evolving scientific, social, ethical, political and humanitarian challenges that face animals and public health care.
