Alison Dewey ’11

“I chose to come to Evergreen because of its progressive learning environment. But without the scholarship, I could not afford to stay.”

Alison plans to become a college philosophy professor. Her Foundation scholarship helps ensure she can continue her education without being overburdened with debt. “Philosophy teaches how to analyze the critical issues we are facing, and methods to solve problems in our society,” she says. “Passing that on is the best way I feel I can impact the world.”
