Reynolds & Reynolds Provides Scholarships Auto Tech Students

The company has donated scholarship dollars to both Northwood University and Sinclair Community College.

The Reynolds and Reynolds Company recently announced it is funding $375,000 in scholarships for Northwood University students over the next three years and has pledged a multi-year scholarship commitment to helping automotive students at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio. The company says assisting students who have financial need and strong academic marks is something it strives to do whenever it can. 

“With the ever-evolving business climate of retail automotive, a vast need for high-performing industry professionals is constantly present,” said David Shimek, senior vice president of corporate development for Reynolds and Reynolds. “With these scholarships, Reynolds hopes to help shorten the gap between dealerships and the employees that will make them successful.”

Administered through the Sinclair Foundation, the Reynolds and Reynolds Automotive Technology Scholarship is designed to support up to 50 Sinclair Community College students annually.

“Sinclair Community College is grateful to Reynolds and Reynolds for its commitment to strengthening our efforts to meet the growing demand for skilled professionals in the automotive industry and contribute to a highly trained and capable workforce,” said Dr. Steven Johnson, President of Sinclair Community College.

At Northwood University, students will be chosen for scholarships by the University Scholarship Committee to receive Reynolds & Reynolds’ donations annually. The scholarship will be used for tuition, room and board, experiential learning opportunities and to cover the cost of books and other required materials.

“Reynolds & Reynolds’ visionary support is a direct investment in helping Northwood students gain the necessary education to meet the automotive industry’s rapidly evolving needs,” said Dr. Kristin Stehouwer, provost and academic vice president for Northwood University. “Together, we are forging a path toward innovation, education, and excellence, ensuring that the next generation of leaders in this field are well-equipped to drive positive change.”

Students enrolled in any of the following areas of focus at Northwood and who opt into the Private Scholarship Donor Program, will be eligible to be chosen as a recipient: 

  • Automotive marketing and management;
  • Automotive aftermarket;
  • computer science;
  • Accounting;
  • Finance.

“Whether it’s the front or back of the dealership, having well-educated employees that can be looked to as leaders in their field, is important,” Shimek said. “Helping ensure students who need financial assistance to make their career dreams come true, is something we are excited to assist with.”
