The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) announced that the Russ Robson AASP/NJ Memorial Sponsorship, in honor of the late past association president who was dedicated to training and education, was awarded to Michael Boffo of Elmer’s Auto Body, Inc., in Ephraim, N.J., at their 2015 Annual Meeting on Oct. 28th at the Gran Centurions Ballroom in Clark, N.J.

“From the first day of hire, Mike has been a hard-working team member,” said Elmer’s Auto Body General Manager Donald Cox in Boffo’s nomination letter. “He had such a desire to enter our industry that he has worked during the day and put himself through Camden County Vocational Technical School at night for collision repair.”

Cox noted Boffo’s work ethic, passion, positive attitude and continued growth as some of the reasons why he submitted the new technician for consideration.

“Russ Robson was always so passionate and dedicated to growing our industry in any way possible,” said AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell. “It’s nice to see the same love for the automotive repair field reflected in such a young technician. We are pleased to be able to help him continue his education. I’m sure Russ would be happy as well.”
