Wheaton College Norton, Massachusetts

Dellie Smith Woodring ’62

“I am forever thankful for the well-rounded liberal arts education I received. Not a week has gone by in the past 50 years when I haven’t thought of Wheaton in one way or another. The college gave me the gift of learning to be an independent thinker. This has enabled me to undertake business endeavors and community activities with self-confidence. I am still in touch with several of my Wheaton friends, including classmates, faculty and staff members. I am grateful for these long-lasting relationships and how they continue to enrich my life. My husband, Doug, and I married the summer after my graduation. Wheaton is a natural fit for our long-range estate planning, as he was a frequent visitor to the campus (from Brown University), and we both appreciate the lifelong benefits I have received from Wheaton. I feel fortunate that I’m able to give back in the form of annual contributions and a charitable gift annuity. Supporting Wheaton and maintaining the vitality of its educational program is a high priority for me as we face the challenges of higher education in today’s world.”
