“I am honored to be recognized by the Women’s Industry Network, and I am even more honored to be a member of this amazing organization,” said scholarship recipient Megann Holbrook. “With this association, I wish to make other women, not only working in the industry but customers as well, more comfortable tackling this male-dominated industry and giving them the basic knowledge to excel themselves.”
The newly expanded WIN Scholarship Program is made possible by the support of WIN sponsors and by special events including the Scholarship Walk, held annually at the WIN Educational Conference, and sales of the “There’s A Place For You” recruiting poster.
“We believe that we have an obligation to support young women who choose to enter our industry,” said Beverly Rook, co-chair of the Scholarship Committee. “By offering tuition scholarships to further their education, and having them mentored by other successful women in the industry, we feel that we are giving them a head start to a successful career.”

Each scholarship recipient will receive a $1,000 scholarship to continue their post-secondary education in collision repair, a one-year WIN Membership, plus waived registration fees and travel expenses to attend the 2014 Educational Conference being held this year at Paradise Point in San Diego, CA.
