"We see the leadership that WMA has, that they are moving forward. It's a good school and needs the support of the alumni. Including Wilbraham was an obvious choice."

"WMA gave all of us so many memories, experiences, and knowledge. I hope that by naming WMA in my estate it will someday help students attain the same education and experiences I received."

“I know how much WMA helped me, so how can I go through life, or reach the end of it, and not give something back?”

"It was the independence, structure, and discipline I received at WMA, which helped me throughout my undergraduate and graduate days. I use those skills even today. I strongly encourage other alumni to consider a planned gift when thinking about how they can support WMA."

Wilbraham was right for me in so many ways. I got the academics I needed for college and could stay active in sports and social activities. It was only one year but the Academy's impact has been lifelong. Giving back just makes sense." 

Dr. Harrison B. Hawley '61
"The small classes and dedicated faculty made learning easy and provided the tools and confidence for higher learning. Playing on the golf team was fun and built the fundamental skills for a game that I still enjoy at age 80. I hope to help give future students the same opportunity."
