Techforce Foundation And Collision Repair Education Foundation Announce Scholarship Recipients

Each winner received $2,000 that can be used to continue their education in the collision repair industry.

TechForce Foundation, in partnership with the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF), has awarded three collision repair students with scholarships funded through a TechForce Foundation FutureTech Success Grant. Winners were selected from a pool of students who demonstrated a passion for learning and an affinity for the collision repair industry based on their participation in the scholarship’s selection process.

Each winner received $2,000 that can be used to continue their education in the collision repair industry.

This year’s scholarship winners include:

• Hanife Manning of Guilford Technical Community College in Greensboro, North Carolina;

• Dylan Miller of City College in Billings, Montana; and

• Larmar Tillery of Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown, North Carolina.

“The transportation industry needs, on average, more than 15,000 new collision repair technicians each year, but tech schools are only graduating one-third of that number,” said Jennifer Maher, executive director, TechForce Foundation. “TechForce Foundation is proud to partner with organizations, including the Collision Repair Education Foundation, to solve this industry-wide challenge. By supporting collision repair students like Hanife, Dylan and Larmar, TechForce and CREF are working together to champion the next generation of transportation technicians and keep America rolling. Congratulations to the scholarship winners!”

Industry members interested in joining the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s supporters and assisting high school and post-secondary collision school programs and students should contact Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode at (312) 231-0258 or [email protected]
