Scott_Heintzelman"When asked why I hire so many Messiah College graduates, my answer is not 'Messiah has one of the best accounting programs in the nation,' though that’s true. While an excellent education is certainly a factor, I have learned that what makes an exceptional employee rests more in character than knowledge, and Messiah’s students demonstrate exemplary character."
