Thomas Hixon blazed his own paths as a scientist and teacher. I knew Tom for almost 30 years as my teacher, employer, mentor, and, finally, as a colleague. Tom was one of the first instructors I met in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of Arizona when I began my Masters Degree program in speech-language pathology. I subsequently finished my degree along with my Master's thesis under his mentorship. After completing my clinical fellowship, I came back and worked in his lab for a number of years before starting and completing my doctoral degree with him.
