“I was brought up in a family in which education was not only valued but considered, as my mother always said, ‘the one thing that you could never lose.’ My education certainly confirms that on many levels. Wheaton provided me with all that I could have asked for—inspirational professors, terrific extracurricular activities, and lifelong friendships. The college continues to be a special place for me many years after graduation. Luckily, I married someone who feels just as strongly about education as I do. Supporting education has always been a priority in our giving. We have contributed to the new Mars Center for Science and Technology, in keeping with our respect for the sciences. We have enthusiastically supported scholarship programs, hoping to make a difference in the lives of students. And we have included Wheaton in our estate plan, to continue our commitment well into the future.”
