INSPIRING STUDENT STORIES
"Joining the WMS Public Speaking program was one of the most important decisions I ever made. Participating in this program, as well as in other WEF funded activities such as History Day and Math Olympiad, helped me to develop the necessary skills and self-confidence to excel in and out of school. I am grateful to WEF for supporting the programs that helped prepare me for success in high school, college, and beyond."
– Brendan Chapuis, The Woodstock Academy, Class of 2018; Harvard College, Class of 2022
“I am grateful for the opportunities from the Woodstock Education Foundation that granted my growth as a leader in many programs at The Woodstock Academy. In middle school I challenged myself to become a better and more confident speaker in public speaking, drama club, and with my participation in History Day. All these programs have led me to be a leader in volleyball, music, and drama, and have allowed myself to go beyond my limits to achieve great things."
– Samantha Orlowski, Woodstock Academy Class of 2019
