 PhotoofElenaHelmersWegmanThe Charles E. Daniel Endowed Scholarship is the reason that Elena Helmers-Wegman ’19 is a student at Wofford.

“I have been given such a gift, and I am determined to honor my scholarship donor by doing everything I can to leave my mark on Wofford and to graduate as a changed, challenged, well-rounded individual who is prepared to take on the world,” she says.

Helmers-Wegman is double majoring in biology and English, eager to find intersections between the two as she advances in her academic career. She’s also an active leader in Greek Life, a member of the Honor Council, a Wofford Ambassador, an Orientation Staff leader, a student employee in the Student Affairs office, a graphic design intern in the Athletics Office and a small-group leader in the Purple Scarf Society, a professional development group for Wofford women. This year, Helmers-Wegman also co-founded the Gender Equality Committee.

To Helmers-Wegman, the Wofford experience is more than just about academics, it’s about the intersection of curriculum, community and opportunity and the promise of growth that they all provide.

“This truth is made evident by the guidance of an impassioned faculty, the integrity of a Wofford degree, the challenge of a liberal arts curriculum, the support of world-class facilities and the atmosphere of a genuine, connected student body,” she says.
