Ernest Wheeler’s Scholarship Funds Ernest (“Ernie”) Wheeler ’61 established scholarships at Saint Anselm College for a simple reason: he loves the college. His studies prepared him for a successful business career. And it’s here that the Golden Anselmian made many of his best memories, through fun times with friends and afternoons on the playing field and basketball court and through the many intramural sports he enjoyed. He began giving two named annual scholarships in 2004, and these have benefited 11 students through 16 scholarships. In 2011, he established the Ernest L. and Ruth E. Wheeler Endowed Scholarship Fund, which helps students in good standing with financial need.
