The Bryant Foundation has chosen to offer the program in all Wisconsin communities where Nelson Industries, Inc. had manufacturing plant locations, including Stoughton, which was the corporate headquarters for the company until its sale in 1998. Edwin E. Bryant, a benefactor of the Bryant Foundation, was founder, chairman and CEO of Nelson Industries, Inc. until his death in 1972. Nelson Industries, Inc. continued to be a very successful company and the Bryant Foundation board wishes to acknowledge the importance of all the locations that helped in the company's success by offering scholarships in these communities.
