BETHESDA, MD — Three $1,000 scholarships are available to students pursuing degrees in Northwood University’s Aftermarket Management program from the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association’s (AAIA) Leadership Development Network (LDN). Selection criteria are based upon financial need, academic excellence and level of interest in the industry.
Andrew Dague, Ryan Gillenwater and Amanda Shelly were the 2004 recipients selected from among 24 applicants. All three students share a passion for cars, and have goals ranging from opening a parts store to becoming CEO of an aftermarket business.
“We’re extremely proud to help develop the future leaders of our industry,” said LDN chairman Larry Easterlin. “Clearly, education is a core component of LDN’s mission.”
Funds are raised through sponsorships of the LDN’s popular Fun Walk & Run, held this year at AAIA’s Spring Leadership Days in Huntington Beach, CA. Generous support from the following companies makes this program possible: Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, Inc., Automotive Distribution Network, Automotive Parts Associates, Inc., Counterman Magazine, Gelia, Wells & Mohr, National Pronto Association, ROL Manufacturing of America, Inc. and Technical Chemical Company.
