I-CAR Education Foundation Establishes The Lon Baudoux Legacy Scholarship Fund

The Lon Baudoux Legacy Scholarship fund was created by several I-CAR Program Instructors nationwide as a memorial to Lon, honoring all he has done for the collision industry.

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. – The I-CAR Education Foundation has established The Lon Baudoux Legacy Scholarship in memory of I-CAR Development Manager Lon Baudoux, who passed away suddenly on Nov. 11. The Lon Baudoux Legacy Scholarship fund was created by several I-CAR Program Instructors nationwide as a memorial to Lon, honoring all he has done for the collision industry.
 
"Those of us who knew and worked closely with Lon looked up to him for his sound industry knowledge and sincere dedication to the importance of training,” said Jeff Peevy, I-CAR director of field operations. “Lon was known for treating everyone fairly and would not hesitate to go the extra mile to help someone advance professionally within the industry. I feel fortunate to have known him and believe this scholarship effort is fitting to carry on his legacy."
 
I-CAR Program Instructors Steven Schmidt and Joe Burda were instrumental in getting the fund established. The Lon Baudoux Legacy Scholarship will support a high school or college student pursuing a career in collision repair. The I-CAR Education Foundation has agreed to fund the first $1,000 scholarship in spring 2009 to get the scholarship program started.
 
“We are honored to have been asked to help create a scholarship fund in memory of Lon Baudoux,” said Scott Kruger, executive director of the I-CAR Education Foundation. “The Lon Baudoux Legacy Scholarship will be a wonderful way to celebrate his life, carry on his good works and assure that Lon’s memory continues to positively impact collision training and education forever.”
