Seth Fearnow ’15

Wilberforce Scholarship recipient Seth Fearnow


“Wilberforce started his influential work at the same age that most attend college,” says Seth Fearnow ’15, an engineering major from Memphis. “It makes me see that I can make a difference for better or for worse with my resources right now. It’s shown me that God works through all callings, even while we’re students.”


In his application essay for the Wilberforce Scholarship, he discussed irresponsibility in contemporary culture. “Culture advertises immature living as beneficial and more fun,” he says. After graduation, he plans to work as a mechanical engineer for an international organization, possibly on environmental projects or research, promoting responsible living.


“Being a Wilberforce Scholar has definitely shown me how profound my studies can actually be and what kind of difference it can make on a larger scale,” says Seth. “It gives me an example to see and to imitate.”
