The Power of GivingLearn how your gift enables students at Westminster College to lead meaningful lives.
Elhom Gosink ('17) is a political science major passionate about people. "I've always been interested in people, particularly international politics and human rights." Pursuing a college education was always a part of her plan, but she knew there were obstacles in her way and that she needed help.
Elhom applied to Westminster and was accepted into the Honors College. Receiving a scholarship solidified her choice to attend. "Scholarships have allowed me to fully receive the college experience," she said. "I've been able to be a part of the Westminster community without having that fear of 'how am I going to pay for college?'"
Elhom has jumped head-first into everything that Westminster has to offer. Through the Center for Civic Engagement, she coordinates a mentoring program at East High School that helps English language learners apply for college, write scholarship essays, and prepare for a bright future. "The reason I care so is because it's not that these students aren't inspired enough or that they don't want to do it; they just don't know about the resources available to them." Elhom wants the students she helps to have the same access to higher education she's had thorough scholarships. "I want to make sure that everyone gets that chance," she said. "Especially with education, everyone should get the chance to better themselves."
Scholarships create opportunities. Support students like Elhom by supporting scholarships.
