Dooley Scholarship Helps Students


Ed Dooley returned to campus in June to celebrate with his peers from the class of 1964.

Alumnus Ed Dooley uses words like "demanding" and "no-nonsense" to describe his former business and economics professor, Harold Williams. He also says Williams had "the greatest positive impact upon my career and life." After graduating from Central in 1964, Dooley had a successful career as an officer for the United States Air Force, 1030th Headquarters Command, in Washington, DC.

After leaving military service in 1970, Dooley pursued an MBA at Washington State University. He went on to a long career that included corporate controller and chief financial officer for several companies, including 19 years with Boise Cascade Corporation, a Fortune 500 company.

Today, Dooley is having a similar positive impact on current and future CWU students by creating a scholarship fund for those in financial need. He and his wife, Mary, established a permanent endowment for the Ed and Mary Dooley Scholarship with the CWU Foundation. They both are pleased to provide future financial assistance for CWU students to help them achieve their goals and make positive contributions the world. The Dooleys have made provisions for a planned estate gift to benefit their fund long into the future.

You can leave a legacy at CWU with a gift to the CWU Foundation in your will or living trust. For more information contact the CWU Foundation at 509-963-2160.
