Senior Class Gift

The Class of 2014 is supporting the Cynthia Longfellow Teaching Recognition Award for their Senior Class Gift. This prestigious award is given annually at Commencement to a non-tenured faculty member to acknowledge and honor distinguished teaching and the promise of continued excellence in teaching at Wheelock College. Recipients are faculty members who inspire academic excellence in students and who create strong connections to students through teaching, mentoring and advising. The award honors the memory of the late Cynthia Longfellow, a Wheelock Faculty member in Human Development who was known as a superb teacher and a great supporter, friend and advisor to our students.

Gifts will be made in memory of Dr. Joeritta de Almeida, an assistant professor of education at Wheelock College who recently passed away.

"Joeritta's spirit was palpable. She gave away her love, goodness, and light to everyone equally, refusing to believe that there were people who may not be worthy of it." - Linda Banks-Santilli '85, Associate Professor, Elementary Education

Here are a few suggested gift levels; but remember every gift counts:

  • $20.14 - Make a gift in honor of the Class of 2014.
  • $12.50 - Make a gift in honor of Wheelock College's 125th anniversary.
