Alumni family finds creative way to share fruits of their labor with Whitman College

From Whitman.edu

In the family tradition of supporting Whitman and serving youth in the local community, all profits from the sale of "L’Érudite" will be donated to the Whitman Institute for Scholastic Enrichment (WISE) program. Now in its fifth year, WISE is a free program that provides a college-like experience for primarily low-income and/or first-generation college Walla Walla area middle school students. The program generates excitement about college and helps students see it as a realistic goal. Participants stay in residence halls on campus for three days to attend classes taught by Whitman professors and take part in college-prep workshops. Parents of these students receive guidance on financial aid, high school academic choices and other ways to prepare their children for college.
