The WIN scholarship included airfare, lodging and food to the NACE Expo with a full access pass provided by the Automotive Management Institute (AMI). Rachel also received a 2009 membership to WIN.

“Being able to provide this type of scholarship is a fundamental part of WIN’s mission,” said WIN Chair Geralynn Kottschade, owner of Jerry’s Body Shop, Mankato, Minn. “In addition to the educational and development opportunity, WIN connected Rachel with a female mentor who is helping introduce her to other women in the industry and offering her an ongoing support system. Mentoring is another key element of WIN’s mission to drive the future of women in collision repair.”
