Erin Wilkus, Biology, Class of 2010

In 2010, Wilkus was awarded $10,000 to build and maintain a language resource center in partnership with Tshulu Trust in a Venda community of South Africa.  Rosetta Stone was installed on the computers along with other multi-media learning materials. Wilkus hoped to provide the Venda community of HaMakuya with the tools needed to learn English, a skill that would open doors to education, employment, and socioeconomic mobility.
