Wheaton College Norton, Massachusetts

Nancy Blease Considine

Values intellectual inspiration
I synthesize biological compounds used by researchers studying genetically linked diseases. At Wheaton the love for chemistry by the professors was infectious, which motivated me to choose chemistry as my major and career path.

Focuses on what’s important
The first week I arrived at Wheaton we were all bused to local areas for community service. The lesson I learned stayed with me: No matter how busy I am with work, family or social life, I try to give back to society.

Knows the formula for success
Each generation needs to help the next. By giving to the Wheaton Fund I am supporting our future generations in the way that a donor helped me. The Wheaton connection doesn’t end at Commencement.
