Atlanta I-CAR Volunteer Committee Awards $5,000 Student Scholarship Through CREF

The Atlanta I-CAR Volunteer Committee awarded two $5,000 scholarships through the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) this spring. The scholarships will be used to assist students with educational expenses such as tuition, books, tools and equipment. Funding for this scholarship was made possible through the committee hosting annual golf and car show fundraiser events.

The 2015 grant winners include:

  • Kevin Galloway (Chattahoochee Technical College, Jasper, GA)
  • Nicolas Ramirez (North Georgia Technical College, Clarkesville, GA)

I-CAR Georgia State Chairman and Atlanta Committee Chairman Gerry Poirier stated, “The ability to be able to provide these deserving future collision technicians with scholarships is due entirely to the dedication of the volunteers on the Atlanta Committee and the generosity of the collision industry in supporting the committee’s fund raising events. The scholarships have been offered by the committee for the last 3 years. Thanks to everyone involved for their dedication to improving our industry.”

Inter-industry organizations and individuals who are interested in supporting the Education Foundation and increasing the amount of assistance provided to collision schools and students should contact Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode at Brandon.Eckenrode@ed?foundation.org or 847-463-5244.
