The Ardon Foundation was established in 1991 by Gene Eaton to help promote education. Education was a core value in his business and personal life. “Survive on purpose, be lucky by accident” was a favorite phrase and the sentiment is on display in the ECE scholarship.
ECE Education Scholarship
The ECE scholarship was created specifically in 2001 in tribute to Gene Eaton who died on August 17, 2000. Gene’s initials were ECE.
The ECE scholarship is awarded to students who are employed at least 24 hour per week. Students who apply must not have student loans in order to take advantage of this scholarship opportunity. The Ardon Foundation distributes roughly $4000 during each school year typically to Wyoming residents.
