The Christina Nicole Heichelbech Memorial Endowed Scholarship was established in 2010.  Christina was born in Brandon, Florida, the daughter of Darrell and Carol Heichelbech.  Christina was a Junior at Jefferson County International Baccalaureate School, where she was named a Jefferson County Superintendent's Super Scholar.  She had earned an ACT score of 30 and a full tuition scholarship to Auburn University with full plans to attend Auburn after her high school graduation.  She volunteered for her local Veterinarian (Dr. Charles Hart, former President of the GBAC in 2013) and was to attend the Auburn University College of Veterinarian Medicine after her undergrad studies at Auburn.  Christina was a sweet, friendly spirit and a bright light to those who had the honor of knowing her with her short time on earth.  She touched many lives, before the tornadoes struck her family's home and Christina's life was tragically ended early from that early morning storm.  Her love of Auburn and caring for animals at Dr. Hart's clinic was cut short, but her legacy lives in this endowed scholarship.
