We are proud to announce that this is the fifth year since we inaugurated our Plesser’s Scholarship in memory of our longtime devoted employee of almost twenty years and Babylon resident, Diane Froehlich. Diane was well known and loved in the community. She was a graduate of Babylon High School, so accordingly we are honored to have created this scholarship in her name. Plesser’s is always looking to give back to the local community and by doing so we decided to create an annual scholarship, which will hopefully propel future generations of entrepreneurs towards a similar path, keeping small business relevant.
Throughout our history, Plesser’s 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.
This year, it is with great pleasure that we announce our 2021 recipient is Allie Van Rossem. Congratulations to Allie! Allie is pursuing a degree in Environmental Studies and Business. We wish you continued success always.
