Jessica Austin '06, recipient of the Thomas A. Chandler Scholarship Fund

Jessica is pursuing an M.A. degree at St. John’s University, after earning her B.S. at Union College, where she also played collegiate soccer.
“The academic and study skills Chandler taught me, like how to handle big work loads, helped me succeed in high school and college. Because my academic foundation was so strong, I’ve risen to each challenge as I’ve gone through school. Now, I feel prepared to pursue a graduate degree. I’m grateful to donors who fund Chandler scholarships, because it has a lifelong impact. I give back now as an alumna by working at Summer@Chandler. I want to give kids their own welcoming, caring experiences at Chandler!”
