Plesser’s Appliance Scholarship

In Memory of Diane Froehlich

Throughout its history, Plessers has remained family owned and has embodied the tenets of small business entrepreneurship. In an age of huge, multi-billion dollar chain stores, Plesser’s has used this spirit to navigate the retail appliance and electronics industry and remain viable and profitable.

Always looking to give back to the community that has supported us and served us well over the years, we have decided to create an annual scholarship, which will hopefully propel future generations of entrepreneurs toward a similar path, keeping small business relevant.

In 2016 we lost a devoted employee of almost 20 years and life long Babylon resident, Diane Froehlich. Diane was well known and loved in the community and was the embodiment of its spirit. Diane was also a graduate of Babylon High School. Accordingly, we are honored to create this scholarship in her name.

We will be awarding the Plesser’s Appliance scholarship to a Babylon High School Student looking to pursue a future in business.  In addition, this student has a strong sense of community demonstrated in part by their participation in volunteer/philanthropic endeavors.  We’re excited for this upcoming Tuesday, June 6 to announce our first annual scholarship recipient.  Thank you to all of our applicants.
