Gail and Selma

More than 60 years separate Selma Hanna '23 and Gail Fielding '62, MAT '79. But at Whitworth, the young student and the longtime graduate have become friends.

"One of the qualities I appreciate about Gail is her love for relationships," Selma says. "She is always on the lookout for opportunities to build friendships and connect the people she knows to each other."

Selma, a business administration major, is able to attend Whitworth with the help of a scholarship funded by caring donors like you. "This support is meaningful because I don't need to worry as much about covering tuition expenses and having to work maximum hours each week," Selma says. "I can better focus on my studies and take as much as I can from what Whitworth offers, including building relationships with the community."

With you, students are supported and encouraged by faithful Whitworthians.

With you, students become equipped to do the meaningful work God has called them to do.

Thank you.

You help students so much. But did you also know you help their families?

Whitworth students and their families sometimes encounter unexpected hardships and even heartbreak (like Michael Emerick '22 and his family). Through your gifts, you ease families' burdens by helping students to stay at Whitworth. You keep students connected to our supportive community when they need it most. Now that's love in action.
