MACOMB/MOLINE, IL -- Every Western Illinois University Leatherneck has a story, and we want to hear yours!

Are you -- or were you -- the recipient of scholarship support as a student at Western? How did this assistance impact your decision to attend Western or enhance your student experience? Did scholarships help you overcome particular obstacles that stood between you and the opportunity to earn your degree?

This is an opportunity to share your story with thousands of alumni donors who contribute each year to provide scholarship assistance to current Leathernecks at Western Illinois University.

Visit to share your story with the WIU Foundation. Tell us how donor support has impacted you, or nominate a student who may have a story to tell. Not only does your input help the Foundation understand all the ways donor support changes the lives of Western students, but your story may also be featured in our direct mail and online outreach to alumni.

For more information, contact Tim Hallinan, director of the WIU Annual Fund at
