The Automotive Management Institute (AMI), in conjunction with Babcox Media, has announced Patrick Johnson, owner of Brothers Body & Paint Inc. in Martinsville, Ind., as the recipient of the BodyShop Business Magazine Scholarship.
The scholarship recognizes a management-oriented member of the Automotive Service Association (ASA). The recipient receives $1,000 to be applied toward expenses to attend educational sessions and view the latest repair technologies and equipment during the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE), to be held July 30 through Aug. 2 this year in Detroit.
Johnson has worked in the repair industry for 45 years and has been a shop owner for the past 34 years. He holds several industry certifications and is currently working to complete the necessary requirements to earn the Institute’s Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) designation. When not working in the shop, he contributes his time to various industry and community organizations.
“I’m grateful to be selected as the recipient of the BodyShop Business Magazine Scholarship and to be given this opportunity to improve my management and technical skills and share that knowledge with the best employees any shop could wish for,” said Johnson.
