Class of 1960 Scholarship Recipients
Emma Girouard ’21
Hometown: Reading, Massachusetts | Course of Study: Psychology, Theatre and Dance Studies
I am so grateful to receive the Class of 1960 Wheaton Fund Scholarship this year. I am a member of the Class of 2021, and I am double majoring in psychology and theatre and dance studies. When I complete my education at Wheaton, I hope to find a career that incorporates these two passions.
I am from Reading Massachusetts and I am very thankful to be here at Wheaton. My classes are very engaging and interesting, especially my psychology class “Drugs and Behavior,” taught by Professor Maeng. My extracurricular activities include the dance company, I am the treasurer and a member of the tap club “Tap Out Loud,” and I participated in this semester’s musical, “Once On This Island.” I have had many valuable experiences at Wheaton thanks to your support, and I am sure I will have many amazing opportunities in the future.
I love Wheaton—I cannot imagine attending another school! Thank you again for making this scholarship available to me.
Impact of Scholarship
This scholarship allows me to pursue my passions and gives me incredible opportunities to better myself academically and personally. Thank you again for supporting my education with this thoughtful and generous scholarship!
This semester I have been a part of the Wheaton musical, Once On This Island. This experience has helped me grow as a performer and has opened my eyes to different cultures through the field of theatre. This is an invaluable experience I never would have the opportunity to take part in anywhere else and I am forever grateful.
At Wheaton, I am a preceptor, a member of the Dance Company, a member of Tap Out Loud, and I participated in the mainstage musical, Once On This Island.
Career Goals and Aspirations
I am not quite sure what I want to do after I graduate from Wheaton, but I aspire to do something that incorporates my passions for both theatre and psychology.
Jorge Aguirre Martinez ’20
Hometown: Madrid, Spain | Course of Study: Mathematics, Computer Science
It is an honor for me to receive the Class of 1960 Endowed Scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year. I am so grateful for your generosity, which allows me to attend this great school!
I am a member of the Wheaton Class of 2020, and I am majoring in mathematics and minoring in computer science. I am a junior now, so I have to start thinking about what I want to do once I graduate. At this moment, I see myself working on the East Coast. I want to work as a data analyst or as a software engineer because I really enjoy programming. My idea is to work for a couple of years and once I can afford it, I want to attend graduate school and get my master’s degree in the computer science field.
Thank you so much for supporting my education and for making a difference in my future!
Impact of Scholarship
This scholarship is very important for my family and me. First of all, it indicates that I am performing well in school and that means a lot to me for personal satisfaction. Also, it means a great deal to my family because I have a younger brother and sister that are also trying to study in the United States, and all the money I can save for my parents is money that can be dedicated to their education. Thank you again for your generosity!
I really enjoy playing tennis at Wheaton, I would say that the team is one of my favorite things about Wheaton. The atmosphere is positive and fun, and I have made very good friends on the team.
I am a member of the men’s varsity tennis team at Wheaton. I also completed two internships during the last two summers.
Career Goals and Aspirations
I want to dedicate my career to the area of data analytics because I think that it is a sector that is growing rapidly. My most recent summer internship experience made me realize that I could have a lot of success in this field.
