“My life changed when a friend told me about Wilson College at a difficult time in my life. I didn’t think college was possible for me as a student parent. But Wilson made it possible for me to have the traditional student life experience. Being a student parent is difficult. But, with the help of Wilson staff and faculty members, I have been provided resources for me and my son to beat the odds”

“I came into Wilson College with bias, obscurity, limitations and doubts. … Today, I believe, I am optimistic, limitless, and determined. I found my true BOLD here at Wilson! … By the time I graduate, I will be the first college graduate, not only in my generation, but in my entire lineage. Your investments, will make sure I complete my education and will change the story of an entire family”

“I am in many clubs and am the class vice president; experiences only made possible by not having to work while in school because of scholarships. Wilson has shaped me into the person that I am today. There is nothing more valuable than the things that I have learned while at Wilson College.”

“When I entered Wilson College in 1935, I didn’t realize that the lessons I learned there would influence me throughout my entire life. Wilson gave me a solid foundation on which to build a strong future. I sincerely believe it is important to support young people so that they can benefit from the education and values that Wilson College offers, just as I did. I look forward to supporting the Wilson Fund as long as I am able”
Virginia Gehr Stackel ’44,
“I support the Wilson Fund because, as a proud ’77 graduate of this fine institution, I believe in helping Wilson to continue to offer the highest quality education to men and women for years to come! Much of my heart and soul is in Wilson College. The education I received there is what started me on the path to the person I am today”
Cindy Shoemaker ’77,
“I give to the Wilson Fund because I had such a life changing experience at Wilson and I want other students to have the same. Giving unrestricted gifts to the College means the money is used where it is most needed to create the best programs and campus for students”
