Haley Meredith graduated from Carroll College in 2019 with a B.A. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and a minor in Gender Studies. After graduation, Haley was proud to help deliver high-quality healthcare to women and gender minorities at Planned Parenthood of Montana in Helena as a clinic assistant. In the fall of 2021, she matriculated into the University of Montana’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy and continues to serve, now as a student pharmacist, at Missoula’s Planned Parenthood. Following her expected graduation in 2025, she looks forward to serving Montana communities as an ambulatory care pharmacist.
“Any college or university can provide its students with a scientific understanding of a discipline, but in Carroll professors I observed a unique willingness to describe the mysteries and the beauty inherent in their fields of study. My professors challenged me not to memorize, but to consider and comprehend; not to recite, but to discuss and debate. As a BMB major, it was universally understood that I should also be studying the humanities, immersing myself in extra- and co-curricular activities, and approaching new and controversial ideas with both confidence and humility and, always, with rigorous curiosity.
I learned best at Carroll in collaboration with my peers, who often had backgrounds and values strikingly different from my own. Having been raised in a small town in Idaho, I believe the diversity of my classrooms was every bit as enriching to my education as the material we studied. As a healthcare provider, I will need to do justice by every patient I see, not just the ones I think are similar to me.”
