She's fifth generation at Sheldon Gas, Dunkirk

Lindsay Walden: "“The Dicke College of Business has given me confidence to go into my family’s business and continue to keep it running for many more generations to come.”

Note: This is one of several stories about recent ONU grads from the ONU website. Lindsay Walden is from Dunkirk.

Growing up, family and business were one and the same to management major Lindsay Walden.

For 105 years, her family has operated Sheldon Gas Company, Inc., a natural gas distribution company based in Dunkirk, and now she will become the fifth generation to take over the reins.

Although she knew this career path was always an option, that didn’t get in the way of her bettering herself through higher education.
