Jendy Weppler, '13
Jendy Weppler, who graduated just this past May, is now enrolled in medical school at Wright State University. The Gahanna, Ohio native double majored in chemistry and molecular biology. The late Donna Newberry recruited her to play softball at Muskingum. In addition to playing softball for three years, she played basketball for three years as well.
In addition to being a varsity athlete, Weppler was also a member of three academic honoraries: Lambda Sigma, Phi Kappa Phi and Omicron Delta Kappa.
Weppler appreciates the one-on-one interaction she received in the Chemistry Department. “My growth as a student would not have flourished as it did without that,” she asserts.
As for why she chose to pursue a career in medicine, Weppler explains, “I've been working toward medical school since high school. I picked a goal that I knew would be difficult and therefore require focus and dedication, but not be too far out of my reach.”
