“Wheaton remains one of my most precious experiences. As excited as I was to begin my education at Wheaton, I felt lost as I ventured into the world. Wheaton supported me academically and emotionally and helped me build a strong foundation for my life. I learned life skills that inform my coaching men and women seeking to take their leadership skills to the next level. The friends I made at Wheaton are very special to me, and I continue to make new Wheaton friends today. None of this would have been possible without financial aid, and for that I am very grateful. My husband, Bob, and I value education highly and give to Wheaton to fund scholarships for those who are inspired by the college’s mission and need funds to realize their dream. Our current scholarship pledge allows us to meet the students who make up the face of Wheaton today. We will continue our commitment to Wheaton through current scholarships as well as through a legacy from our family trust for future students.”
