Class of 2021: Molly Waggoner

We celebrate the Class of 2021, what they have achieved during their years at Ripon and what they hope to achieve in the next chapter of their lives.

Molly Waggoner ’21 of Pulaski, Wisconsin, is majoring in educational studies with a minor in studio art. She simultaneously studied special education at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. She plans to teach.

“The most important lesson I will be taking from Ripon is that you have the ability to do whatever you put your mind to,” she says. “No matter any obstacle that you are put through, if you put in the time, the work and the effort, you can do anything.”

She adds, “Being able to work in the admission office for most of my time at Ripon holds special memories for me. I was able to meet many prospective students and talk about why I love Ripon College. The best was seeing them on campus the next fall.”
