William McHenry Scholarship Fund

William McHenry was president of Elevations, the San Francisco-based provider of furniture, fixtures, artwork, floral and decorative accessories, and seasonal decor. The company celebrated its 25th anniversary this year. Prior to the founding of Elevations in 1990, William worked as an account manager for Susan Crane, Dallas. He acquired invaluable experience and a keen understanding of the visual merchandising industry, working in both the packaging and visual merchandising divisions. Following his tenure at Susan Crane, he was the national sales manager for Display Products Ltd., Seattle. Throughout his career, McHenry was actively involved in the wider industry. He served on the PAVE Board of Directors as PAVE’s VP of Fundraising, and recently completed a three-year term as a board member of A.R.E. He also served as VP and later as president of the Western Association of Visual Merchandising (WAVM), board member of the National Association of Display Industries (NADI), and member of A.R.E.’s Retail Design Collective Committee. McHenry was extremely active in these roles and worked tirelessly to execute association activities, all while running his company. McHenry and Elevations Inc. have been proud supporters of Project Inform, San Francisco AIDS Walk, Macy’s Passport Fund, and PAVE.

A PAVE scholarship has been established in his memory.
