George E. Gasser Memorial Scholarship

The Gasser family established this scholarship in 2014 to honor the memory of George E. Gasser. As one of three brothers who founded Gasser Chair Company in 1946, George served as its President from 1976 to 1987 and Chairman of the Board of Directors and C.E.O. from 1999 until he retired in 2005. George believed in the importance of higher education and established an Educational Assistance Program for employees at Gasser Chair Company who needed financial assistance to further their education. In addition to promoting academic educational opportunities, he was a proud supporter of YSU athletics and the Penguin Club, readily offering his time and assistance whenever possible. This scholarship is for a student-athlete who’s enrolled in the Williamson College of Business and represents YSU with dedication, loyalty and pride.
