Lon Baudoux Legacy Scholarship Recipient ($1,000 award)

Ruslan Lysak (Green River Community College – Auburn, Wash.)

The Lon Baudoux Legacy Scholarship is in its third year and was created
to honor Lon Baudoux, I-CAR development manager, who passed away in
November 2008. Baudoux highly valued education, especially for secondary and
post-secondary students studying collision repair. This scholarship is
funded mainly by I-CAR staff and I-CAR instructors who worked with Baudoux
at I-CAR. The selection of this award is based on a student that not
only excels inside the classroom, but also participates in outside
activities such as clubs, sports and volunteering. The funds go to help
the student finance his or her education.

“This scholarship has special meaning for the Foundation as it
represents part of the tie between the Foundation and I-CAR,” said Chris
Northup, chairman of the Collision Repair Education Foundation Board of

enrichment of young people’s lives. The scholarship selection committee
takes great lengths to insure only the most deserving receive the
benefit of this worthy legacy scholarship.”
