Dan Evers Scholarship and Tribute:

Oct 28, 2022 | News, Newsletter

The OEDA leadership is happy to share that over $7500 was raised at the Annual Summit for the Dan Evers scholarship program!  This program was created by OEDA to honor Dan’s legacy and provide OEDI professional development opportunities to OEDA members.  Look for information soon regarding how to apply for a scholarship in 2023.

Below is a message from Julie Bolton, Dan Evers’ fiancé, who joined us at the OEDA Annual Summit for the tribute and scholarship program announcement.

I want to thank all of the OEDA members for the beautiful tribute to Dan Evers and the scholarship in his name. I can think of no better way to honor his legacy of excellence and commitment to professionalism in the field of Economic Development. He would have been touched to hear all the wonderful things you had to say about him! It was an honor to be invited to attend your annual luncheon and be a part of it. 

Ohio certainly has lost a true leader, a good friend, and a great storyteller! Dan would be so proud of the strides made in economic development and the growth of this organization.

My most sincere thanks,

Julie Bolton
