March 23, 2018 Dear friends, Sheridan area benefactor Edward A. Whitney willed his estate to establish Whitney Benefits Inc., creating the first educational foundation in Wyoming. He made extensive investigations in the East as to how trust funds were structured for education, and repeatedly asked his three associates, later to become the trustees of his estate, for suggestions. The Foundation was established in 1927, ten years after his death in 1917, as provided by his will. In his last will and testament, Mr. Whitney directed the corporation to do three things: 1. Fund a community center in Sheridan. 2. To establish a college in Sheridan. Whitney donated the land Sheridan College sits on today and has helped fund several of their projects and educational programs. 3. To create a student loan program. Since the inception of Whitney Benefits in 1928, Whitney has loaned 5,722 students over $39 million dollars. Last year alone, Whitney approved 125 loans totaling over $2.7 million dollars. These are interest free loans. It’s that time of year when high school and college students are looking forward to graduating and planning the next step of their lives. For many students this includes continuing their education by attending an academic or vocational school. Obtaining a higher education is costly. Tuition, fees, books, travel expenses, room and board costs all add up quickly. Some students are fortunate enough to have college savings accounts and to receive scholarships and grants. However, those might not cover all the costs of education. This is where student loans can help. Whitney Benefits student loans are interest-free. Undergraduate and vocational students can apply to borrow up to a $24,000 credit limit; up to $6,000 per year for academic loans, vocational loans are disbursed based on cost of attendance.  The Fall 2018 student loan application is available now for qualifying students until September 1st on our website. If you think you or your student might need financial assistance for the upcoming school year, I would strongly encourage you to complete an application. Please feel free to contact me at the Whitney office with any questions or concerns at (307) 674-7303.  Warmest regards, Jennifer Destefano Whitney Benefits Student Loan Coordinator
