Sheron Mathew '17

SheronMathewSheron Mathew ’17 chose Wofford because of the college's academic reputation and the small student-to-faculty ratio. "I really value the time spent with my professors," he says. "The open communication and academic challenge that they offer is very important to me." Mathew, a biology and Spanish major from Spartanburg, serves as vice president of APO service frathernity. He co-chaired the Wofford Dance Marathon to raise funds for the Greenville Children's Hospital. He started his own freelance photography business, Shisam Productions, and works as a photographer for the Wofford College Bohemian yearbook.
 
Mathew, a Sarah S. Butler Scholar, has worked as a volunteer intern in the emergency room at Spartanburg Regional. He plans to attend graduate school to become a physician's assistant after he graduates from Wofford.
The Sarah S. Butler Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2004 with a gift from the estate of Sarah S. Butler. A long-time resident of Spartanburg and a generous friend of the college, Butler's interests often centered on beautification of the campus grounds. First preference for awards from the fund goes to worthy students in the field of botany or the study of biology at large.
