Evansville’s 15th anniversary celebrated with Dream Center donation

Posted By Susan Nelson on September 08, 2020


Fifteen years ago, Wessler Engineering leaders chose to open a satellite office located in Evansville, Indiana. Back in 2005, who would have imagined the challenges we are facing in 2020?

Evansville office - croppedOne of the bright spots of this year was the opportunity to recognize our 15 years as an Evansville corporate citizen and how much the community has meant to our Evansville team and our company as a whole. But the ongoing COVID-19 threat meant a traditional celebration was not possible.

Instead, we transitioned to spotlighting a local, well-deserving organization. Based on the recommendation of Evansville Office Manager/Senior Project Manager David Schminke, the Dream Center was chosen.


Founded in 1998, the mission of the Dream Center is to connect children and families to God’s will for their lives empowering them to be successful, self-sufficient members of the community. The organization’s core values are compassion, truth, respect, commitment, and excellence; many of them mirroring Wessler’s core values.

On August 20, Vice President Mary Atkins joined David in presenting a $1,500 check to the Dream Center team, thanking them for their inspiring work.

We are humbled to be a part of the Evansville business community and blessed to shine a light on the meaningful work happening at the Dream Center on behalf of area children. We are looking forward to the next 15 years and beyond in Evansville!
