Pierini announced the gracious contribution to the attendees at the annual dinner gala, commenting that CAWA and Worldpac have similar goals in providing scholarships to current and future aftermarket associates, as well as, automotive high school teachers. “Tonight, I was handed a check from an organization that believes as CAWA does, that is, to support students and automotive high school teachers as part of our responsibility and to give back to the industry we serve… supporting education has been a hallmark of CAWA and Worldpac.” 

According to Cushing, Worldpac made the contribution as “a demonstration of our commitment toward the ongoing recruitment and training of tomorrow’s automotive technicians.
