A recent graduate from Lexington High School in Lexington, Illinois, Heather Jones chose to pursue higher education at Millikin University. She was attracted to Millikin’s small class size, and the opportunity to learn from professors who were experts in their field. At the time she knew she wanted to study chemistry, and was interested in Millikin’s pre-pharmacy track.
