Sally Willis Bancroft ’66Sally knows opportunity opens doors:

“Wheaton is forever with me. I continue to benefit from the personalized education I received and the opportunities I experienced, which led to my career in nonprofit management and still influence my community service work today. I support the Wheaton Fund as national co-chair to ensure that our students have the help they need to design their own bright futures.”

“Working in the field of college admissions in California, I know firsthand the importance of not only helping students get into college but also supporting them during their four-year journey.

  • Wheaton Fund supporter 

Creates positive environment:

“I have always been interested in the role of science in our society, particularly as it applies to environmental laws and protection of human health. After Wheaton, I worked as a high school chemistry teacher for seven years and then went to graduate school to get my Ph.D. in chemistry. Consulting gives me the opportunity to work with clients all over the world to help them meet their environmental goals.”

Takes on challenge:

“I regularly use the problem solving skills I developed at Wheaton. I remember some very challenging ‘Physical Chemistry’ tests that forced me to apply my understanding of the concepts we learned in class to a problem with no clear answer. Now, most of the projects I work on have no clear answer, and a major part of every project is coming up with an innovative approach.”

Values supportive climate:

“I contribute to the Wheaton Fund as a way to say thank you to everyone who influenced me and helped me get to where I am. Giving back also keeps me connected to this special place that educates, inspires and empowers future scientists, peacekeepers, community leaders, scholars and entrepreneurs.”

Navigates road to success. 

“I was drawn to books and writing from an early age, and had an idea I wanted to work in publishing. I majored in English at Wheaton, and through the then Career Planning Office, I got an internship at MIT working on a publication. I also relied on the Alumnae Office for lists of Wheaton graduates who worked in publishing to help me get started.”

West Coast regional admission counselor, Drew University

Class of 2007 Wheaton Fund chair

Wheaton Fund supporter

Enjoys standing at threshold:

“I feel privileged each day I get to work with students and their families because, for most, choosing a college is one of the biggest decisions a young adult faces. Mentoring students and parents makes me feel like I’m making a positive impact in their lives. I helped in the Admission Office during my four years at Wheaton. Once I graduated, I was lucky enough to get a job there. I had incredible mentors, had the opportunity to travel, and loved bringing in the new generations of students.”

Knows preparation is key:

“I was a sociology major and loved working with my professors and doing research.  Analyzing data, interviewing and understanding cultural backgrounds allows me to connect with the students and families on a deeper level.”

Welcomes opportunity to help:

“Working at Wheaton allowed me to fully comprehend the admission and financial aid processes. I support the Wheaton Fund because I want to allow more students to experience the personalized education and the Wheaton way of life.”
