Car Care Council Women’s Board Awards Two High School Scholarships

The Car Care Council Women’s Board has selected the recipients of its inaugural Women’s Board high school scholarship program. Rebecca Evans of Toledo, Ore., and Beth Weckesser of Fenton, Mich., competed with female students from across the nation for the two scholarships.

BETHESDA, MD — The Car Care Council Women’s Board has selected the recipients of its inaugural Women’s Board high school scholarship program.

Rebecca Evans of Toledo, Ore., and Beth Weckesser of Fenton, Mich., competed with female students from across the nation for the two scholarships. Applications were available to women who will attend an ASE-certified, post-secondary automobile technology program and plan on entering the automotive field upon graduation. Evans will attend the Universal Technical Institute in Phoenix, Ariz., and Weckesser will attend Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich.

“The Women’s Board scholarship committee received applications from talented and deserving young women from all across the county, so only choosing two recipients was extremely difficult,” said Becky Babcox, group publisher, Babcox Publications and Women’s Board scholarship committee chair. “I would like to congratulate the scholarship winners and thank all of the applicants for expressing an interest in pursuing a career in the automotive industry.”

The Women’s Board scholarship program awards scholarships not only to high school students, but also to post-secondary students who plan on entering the automotive field upon graduation. The post-secondary scholarship recipients will be announced in July.

The 2004 Women’s Board scholarship sponsors include: Jiffy Lube, Tomorrow’s Technician magazine, MACS, Four Seasons, Advanstar, ACDelco and IAPA.

“We are very grateful to the sponsors of our scholarship because without them we would not be able to offer this terrific program,” said Jennifer Tio, president of the Women’s Board. “It’s great to see such strong support of our efforts to encourage more women to enter our industry.”
