HDA Truck Pride Awards Scholarships to Northwood Students

The scholarships are part of an endowment fund in memory of industry leaders Pete Bley and Jim Burke, Sr.

Two students from Northwood University have been granted scholarships by HDA Truck Pride, an organization dedicated to supporting education in the automotive and heavy-duty aftermarket industry.

Dr. Thomas Litzinger, chair of Aftermarket Education, acknowledged the partnership with HDA Truck Pride, stating, “Northwood University’s University of the Aftermarket is grateful for its collaboration with HDA Truck Pride to help educate the next generation of professionals in the automotive and heavy duty aftermarket.”

Sophomore Ayden Fuller from Muskegon, Michigan, and freshman Connor Klein from Saginaw, Michigan, are the latest recipients. Both are pursuing degrees in automotive marketing and management.

The scholarships are part of an endowment fund established in 2005 in memory of industry leaders Pete Bley and Jim Burke Sr. The fund was initiated by distributors, suppliers and industry colleagues to honor Bley and Burke’s industry contributions and to provide educational opportunities for aspiring aftermarket professionals, Northwood said.

Tina Hubbard, CEO of HDA Truck Pride, commented on the importance of education and the company’s commitment to fostering new talent in the industry, saying, “Education is one of our core pillars at HDA Truck Pride and creating paths for the next generation to enter our incredible industry. We are proud to continue this tradition of providing scholarship support for individuals desiring to further their education in the automotive aftermarket.”
