Dwight E Stoltzfus Memorial Trade Scholarship Sporting Clays Classic raises $17,000.00 for Penn Tech College Scholarship.

Fleetwood PA – September 14, 2018 – DESCCO Design & Construction, Inc. hosted its 14th Annual Dwight E. Stoltzfus Memorial Trade Scholarship Event on Friday, September 7, 2018 at M&E Sporting Clays in Hamburg, PA.

The Sporting Clays Classic was held to benefit an endowed scholarship at Pennsylvania College of Technology. The scholarship has been established in memory of Dwight E. Stoltzfus, founder of DESCCO Design & Construction, Inc. Dwight believed that education was essential to keeping a high standard of quality and excellence in the building trades. The purpose of the scholarship is to aid and encourage a young person to pursue further education in the trades. “Dwight held in high regard people that worked with their hands,” said Kay Stoltzfus of her late husband. “This scholarship is an appropriate way to imprint his standard of quality on the building trades that will last for generations to come.”

Over the past 13 years, more than $90,000.00 has been contributed to the endowed scholarship fund. This year’s Sporting Clays Classic raised more than any other year, with a total of $17,000.00 being contributed to the scholarship.

94 shooting participants along with numerous sponsors and supporters all had a part in making this an outstanding, successful event! DESCCO would like to say ‘Thank You’ to everyone who had a part in making it possible to send $17,000.00 to Pennsylvania College of Technology this year!

“Every day I have the pleasure of working with smart and talented men and women who love to build and create new environments. This is meaningful work as there are countless opportunities in the trades. Our scholarship was created to help those who are driven to build rewarding careers.” Says Nicholas Stoltzfus – President of DESCCO Design & Construction.
