Top-Scoring SkillsUSA Females Receive WIN Scholarships to NACE

For the fifth year in a row, the Women’s Industry Network (WIN) has awarded a scholarship to attend NACE to the two top-scoring female winners at SkillsUSA. This year’s recipients are Alexandra Domer, who placed 8th in the automotive refinishing technology category, and Elizabeth Moore, who placed 10th in the collision repair technology category.

The WIN scholarship includes airfare, lodging and associated expenses, as well as a full-access NACE Expo Pass provided by the Automotive Management Institute (AMI) and ASA. Additionally, Domer and Moore will be honored at the ASA-sponsored industry awards ceremony on Oct. 6. They will also receive a 2012 WIN membership.

After high school, Domer attended the Waubonsee Community College, where she earned two associate degrees in applied science: automotive body repair and automotive technology. She graduated in the spring of 2011 and hopes to have her own collision repair facility one day.

Moore graduated from Freedom High School in the spring of 2011 and is currently attending UTI in Houston.  

“The WIN NACE scholarship goes to the heart of WIN’s mission to support and encourage women who are entering the industry, particularly those in the technical ranks. Surrounded by our amazing WIN members, this scholarship has consistently been a wonderful way to introduce young women to the collision industry,” said Teresa Bolton, director, Collision Repair Test Development, ASE, who also serves as WIN’s Scholarship co-chair and treasurer.
