Hoffman Estates, IL – July 23, 2014 – Two collision students have been awarded the Robert Author Memorial Scholarship through the Collision Repair Education Foundation. Collision students attending Fox Valley Technical College were eligible to receive these scholarships. Funding for these scholarships was made possible through the local I-CAR volunteer committee hosting fundraising events.
The 2014 Robert Author Memorial Scholarship winners include:
Jason Oertel (Fox Valley Technical College, Appleton, WI)
Matthew Spiegel (Fox Valley Technical College, Appleton, WI)
Committee member Jerry Goodson commented, “Thanks to some very generous donors, The Robert Author (Bob) Smith Memorial Golf Outing committee is proud to issue scholarships to these two fine gentlemen. Both demonstrate a great willingness to learn, the commitment to succeed, and perseverance to never give up- a few of the qualities Bob was always looking for as an educator. Awarding the first annual golf outing scholarships will help carry on Bob’s legacy as an inspiration and teacher to many, and a friend to all.”
