Sun Chronicle notes long-distance election campaign

As the new school year approached, the Attleboro Sun Chronicle talked with Emily Firment ’11 about how she won her post as the president of the Student Government Association while she was abroad in Egypt her junior year, and what she learned from the experience.

“Without being cliché, I must say that running from abroad was a true test of dedication to something that has completely transformed my experience at Wheaton,” she said. “Through the long hours of campaigning, I learned the importance of resolve and focus in order to succeed.”
