Monthly Merit Highlights

April 18, 2018

Wheaton College uses a platform called Merit to publish and share student stories with students’ hometown newspapers, government representatives, and local high schools. Each year, we use Merit to highlight students' participation in sports teams and clubs, performances in drama and theater, and academic honors and awards. 

Here are some of this month’s top Merit stories:
