The CARSTAR Future Impact award, presented by the Collision Repair Education Foundation, recognizes CARSTAR stores who contribute to technical education. Scott Kruger, executive director, and Brandon Eckenrode, associate director, honored the CARSTAR Salt Lake City Business Group for their efforts.

The Collision Repair Education Foundation also recognized the CARSTAR corporate team for contributing work shirts to technical students around the country.

Outstanding Achievement in Education & Training

The award for Outstanding Achievement in Education and Training went to the CARSTAR franchisee who has one of the longest tenures as an I-CAR Gold certified store — Eric’s Auto Center CARSTAR in Tucson, Ariz., owned by Eric Grossman.  Grossman has been I-CAR Gold certified for 21 years, one of only three companies in the country to hold that distinction.
