The Ellen C. Wetherell Scholarship

Ellen Wetherell, Secretary for Residential Life and the ‘Voice of Westfield State’ for over 34 years, waged a brave and, characteristically for Ellen, positive battle against cancer for a year and a half. On Sunday, August 18, 2013, Ellen lost the battle but, her incredible spirit, generosity and legacy will live on through the thousands of people she touched in her time here. Ellen gave so much to so many without a second thought…her loving spirit, her unfailing positive outlook and her ability to make every person she spoke with feel comfortable, accepted and loved. This was who she was and who we will always remember.
