“Success means getting up each morning and having something that motivates you to keep going. Success is a state of mind,” said Caitlin Shannon ’19. The scholarship has contributed to her future success by helping her to aim high, which includes earning a master’s in teaching Spanish and ESL. She credits the liberal arts for teaching her to think critically and question. “The sort of persistence and grit this builds is of superb importance, not only on the job, but in life in general,” she said.
