Wheaton College Norton, Massachusetts

Rebecca Andrade Robateau

Believes education is a lifelong gift.
Wheaton laid a foundation for the training that I provide to the public, medical professionals and schoolteachers. The college fosters a standard of excellence that challenged us, and the professors took a personal interest in us as students. I know that I can still call Professor of Biology John Kricher for advice.

Knows how to overcome challenges.
The summer before my senior year I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor. My faith in God strengthened me, and with the support of family, friends and Wheaton staff, I graduated with my class. I was awarded the Watson fellowship and traveled to Belize for a year after graduation. It’s amazing what you can achieve by working hard and being persistent.

Wants to give back.
The Wheaton Fund is a way for us to express our appreciation for the positive impact that Wheaton has had on our lives and ensures that others “may have life and have it abundantly.”
