The Class of 1970 Scholarship Endowment has provided nearly $78,000 in scholarships and student aid for Whitman students since its inception at our 25th reunion. One student expressed, "Without scholarship support, I can honestly say that my Whitman experience would be non-existent. Through the scholarship, you have touched my life in an incredibly special way. I plan to spread your graciousness, not only when I become a practicing physician, but every step along the way."
