Nancy and Robert Sheets

This scholarship is lovingly created by Nancy and Robert Sheets to honor Nancy’s father’s love of tutoring math and statistics to hundreds of De Anza students. David Wolin, (pictured on the left with his wife Betty), following a nearly 30-year career working for Lockheed Missiles & Space Co., enjoyed a second 20-year career as a highly respected math/statistics instructional assistant at De Anza College’s Educational Diagnostic Center (EDC), imparting his love of learning to many appreciative young minds. The EDC has been folded into Disability Support Services (DSS), whose mission is to ensure that students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to reach their educational potential. This scholarship is a fitting legacy to David, who loved his time tutoring and inspired many students to reach their potential despite their challenges.
