Madeline Decker 

Your gift changes perspectives

Growing up in Champaign, Illinois, Madeline Decker always assumed she’d pursue college somewhere other than U of I. Then she took a tour of the campus, and she learned that her gateway to the world was just minutes from her house.

As recipient of the Jean Crist Weagant and William G. Crist Memorial Scholarship, Madeline has been able to double major in English and Spanish, volunteer in Ecuador, and minor in secondary education.

Said Madeline of the scholarship, “It’s really allowed me to focus on my academics and on the extracurricular pursuits that have really shaped who I’ve become.”

Education brings perspective. Join with us, With Illinois, and together we can propel bright minds with the power of an outstanding liberal arts and sciences education.
