Network Controls gift benefits new Trojan football program

Anderson University is naming the lobby of its new football field house—which will house the Trojan Athletic Hall of Fame— in honor of Network Controls, which provided a generous gift in support of the University.

Network Controls owner Ed Niles, along with his wife Liz, joined President Evans Whitaker, Coach Bobby Lamb and other Anderson University officials July 22 to finalize an agreement to provide the gift for the Trojan Football program.

“Anderson University is deeply appreciative of the commitment of Network Controls and Ed and Liz Niles and for expressing great confidence in the future of Trojan athletics,” said Anderson University President Evans P. Whitaker, Ph.D. “The generosity of Network Controls, in supporting Anderson University football, helps our institution continue its growth as one of the leading Christian universities in the nation.”

During his years at the helm of Network Controls, Niles says he has watched Anderson University grow as his own company has grown. For him and his wife, this gift flows from their commitment to Christian education as well as their love for the game of football.

“With Anderson University being a Christian-based school, that really is near and dear to my wife's and my beliefs and how we would like to be able to support within our communities,” said Niles. “Network Controls has been blessed to be in a position that we can financially do this.”
