Deshler Scholarship 2018-02-08T00:04:02+00:00

The Deshler Scholarship

The scholarship program was created in 2008 to honor one of the owners of EC Company, William K. Deshler after his passing. Bill was chairman of the board and assumed leadership of the company for over twenty years of EC‘s nearly seven-decade history.

The renamed William K. Deshler Education Center at EC’s corporate office is another way in which the company has recognized the leadership and educational values he instilled in the company.

“This award also recognizes EC employees for their loyalty and dedicated work – the bedrock of any successful enterprise,” shared one of the Deshler’s family members.
