I-CAR Education Foundation Names 2008 Scholarship Winners

The I-CAR Education Foundation has announced the recipients of the $30,000 in collision repair training and education scholarships that were created to assist deserving students pursuing a career in the collision industry.

This scholarship is funded in part by contributions from local industry businesses to the Collision Repair Education Campaign, formerly the $100 per Collision Repair Facility per Year Campaign. Additional funding for the scholarship program came from the I-CAR Education Foundation’s Industry Partners Annual Fund supported by industry donations.

The top scholarship winner in the Secondary category is Matthew Landman, a student at Beaver County Area Vocational Technical School in Monanca, Pa. Landman will receive a $5,000 scholarship to continue his education and career in the collision industry.

The top scholarship winner in the Post-Secondary category is Michael Luna, a student at St. Philip’s College in San Antonio, Texas. Luna will also receive a $5,000 scholarship to continue his education and further his career.

In addition to Landman and Luna, 10 runner-up scholarships were awarded to students from career and technical schools and colleges. All the runner-up winners will receive a $2,000 scholarship to continue their education. In the Secondary category, the Education Foundation will award scholarships to Brandon Dennis from Medford Vocational Tech High School in Medford, Mass.; Joseph Doolan from Triplett Tech in Mt. Jackson, Va.; Will Harpham from Nichols Career Center in Jefferson City, Mo.; Tamaira Jackson from Fayette Technical Center in Lexington, Ky.; and Justin Lucius from Saginaw Career Complex in Saginaw, Mich.

In the Post-Secondary category, the Education Foundation will award scholarships to Daniel Adami from St. Philip’s College in San Antonio, Texas; Craig Johnson from Portland Community College in Portland, Ore.; Travis McVay from Northwest Iowa Community College in Sheldon, Iowa; Megan Reynard from Triplett Tech in Mt. Jackson, Va.; and Sarah Zamarripas from Texas State Technical College in Harlingen, Texas.

Students were required to submit an essay explaining why they have chosen the collision industry as a career. Additionally, the applicant’s instructor had to submit a recommendation. A selection committee comprising members of the Education Foundation Board of Trustees, along with local I-CAR volunteers, made the final selection of scholarship recipients.
