Mary Wishing

Mary Wishing is a junior at Grove City College, majoring in political science and minoring in sociology and economics. Her research project for this year is writing, editing, and uploading weekly videos explaining principles of conservatism to the people of her generation. Along with the channel, Mary is a student assistant to President Paul J. McNulty ’80, a member of the International Justice Mission chapter on campus, a contributor in the Student Government Association coffeehouse performances, and a member of the Network of Enlightened Women chapter on campus.

Mary is fairly new to politics—she switched into the political science major her second semester of freshman year having no prior political knowledge. She wants to help people who may not understand politics and hopes to one day host her own daily podcast in which she breaks-down current political events into understandable, everyday language with a conservative, Christian worldview.

Last summer, Mary interned with Young America’s Foundation, The Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, CA where she helped run conferences, introduced speakers, interacted with donors, gave tours, helped with marketing, along with other interpersonal work. The summer of 2017, she worked in Yellowstone National Park through an organization called A Christian Ministry in the National Parks where she worked full time in a restaurant and hosted church services to tourists on the weekends.

By adding $10,000 to your annual support, you will enable one conservative student to spend a year learning and working at The Institute for Faith & Freedom at Grove City College. He or she will bear your name as a distinguished Student Fellow for the entire academic year and will send you personal updates throughout the year. Permanent naming opportunities are available with a gift of $200,000. Please contact Jeff Trimbath at 717-693-5141 for more information or visit:
