The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) awarded five collision repair students free memberships during the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s Cars, Careers and Celebrities Expo, a one-day event held in Dallas, Texas, on Aug. 16, 2014.

The five recipients from South Garland High School in Garland, Texas, are Ana Martinez, Juana Morales, Annette Mayoroga, Marissa Ramirez and Jessica Santos.

“Every year we have more and more young women enter our auto collision repair program,” said Craig Baughman, technical instructor for the school. “We are excited about the opportunity to have them invited to join the Women’s Industry Network. I believe relationships which have the potential to develop will influence and encourage their lives more than words ever will.”

Added Petra Schroeder, WIN board member and brand development manager for Axalta Coating Systems, “I was immediately impressed with the positive attitude that these young ladies displayed. We had a great conversation. That’s when I wanted to ‘capture’ them for WIN, providing all of us with opportunities to learn from each other. I look forward to meeting them again soon.”
