Dana Ebel Memorial Scholarship

Dana Ebel was a 1997 WHS graduate. During his time at WHS, he was a multi-sport athlete for the Coyotes. He was a three year starter for the basketball team and also an integral part of the Williston Keybirds' infield. Dana loved sports and coaching for the lifelong friendships that were established, and for the love of helping out little kids and seeing them learn the sports that had brought him so much joy throughout his youth and adult life.

The only thing Dana loved more than sports was his family -- his wife and soulmate Feliciti, his daughters Jocelyn, Annabelle, Olivia, and Gracie, and his son Brody. He was also an avid businessman and a partner at Ebel Integrators, a family-owned business in which he partnered with his father Dwight and his brother Damian. With his energetic personality and his friends calling him "the mayor" because he could strike up a conversation with anybody at any time, business played a natural part of his life. Dana loved to meet new people and to have the opportunity for new possibilities.

This scholarship was created by Dana's friends and family to allow WHS graduates the opportunity to play sports at the next level and continue "for the love of the game." Two $500 scholarships will be awarded annually -- one to a boys’ basketball player and one to a boys’ baseball player.
