The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) – in conjunction with Babcox Media – announced that Benno Ceyer, owner of Weimer Machine/Automotive Repair Specialists in Berwyn, Ill., has been named the recipient of the Tom B. Babcox Memorial 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 Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS) July 21-25 in Detroit.
Ceyer has worked in the automotive service industry for 43 years and has been a shop owner for the past 35. He holds several ASE industry certifications and is currently working toward completing 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 honored to be selected as the recipient of the Tom B. Babcox Scholarship,” said Ceyer. “I’m a firm believer in continuing education and constantly seeking resources to further my education. With this generous scholarship, I will learn improved business practices and share that knowledge with the next generation of technicians and business owners.”
