June 5, 2021 Virtual Annual Celebration

Thank You for Joining Us!

Our Virtual Celebration held on June 5th was a huge success! Over 55 members of the WSAS family joined the virtual event held via Zoom. Hosted by WSAS President Jamie Sabino '75, the celebration included keynote speakers Wellesley College President Paula A. Johnson, and Class of 2021 Co-Presidents Katie Christoph and Shreya Parjan. We also heard recorded messages from former Wellesley College Presidents Nannerl Overholser Keohane ’61 (1981–1993) and Diana Chapman Walsh ’66 (1993–2007).

The event highlighted how donations allowed WSAS to quickly respond to the emerging needs of students. We shared the immediate and lasting ways WSAS has been able to help students hit hard by COVID-19. Dr. Johnson provided insight into how WSAS collaborated with the College to provide aid when and where it did the most good. It was truly a celebration of the deep and positive impact our supporters have made in the lives of Wellesley College students!

December 5, 2020 Virtual Celebration

We thank you for attending the Wellesley Students' Aid Society virtual celebration! Your presence helped to make this event a great success and we hope you found it both informative and uplifting.

We believe our dynamic group of speakers provided insight into the vital support WSAS provides and the impact it has on students and the college. Of course, none of this would be possible without the support of our generous donors - we thank you!
