Whitworth psychology major awarded full-tuition scholarship from Woodrow Foundation

Working mother will finish degree thanks to scholarship

Whitworth senior Jessie Hodet didn't know if she would be able to return to school in the fall. A working mother to two special needs children, Hodet had returned to college after a nearly 10 year hiatus to finish her degree and make a better life for her family. But increasing financial pressures were threatening to delay those plans once again. Now Hodet will be able to graduate next spring after all, thanks to a $32,240 scholarship from the Woodrow Foundation. The scholarship covers tuition and books for the 2011-12 academic year.
