Car Care Council Women’s Board Announces 2009 Scholarship Winners

The comprehensive Women’s Board scholarship program awards scholarships not only to post-secondary students, but also to female high school students who plan on entering the automotive field upon graduation

BETHESDA, MD – Nov. 12, 2009 – During its reception at the Sands Expo Center on Tues., Nov. 3, the Car Care Council Women’s Board (WB) presented Jessica Randby (RIGHT) of Duluth, MN, with a $2,500 post-secondary scholarship, as part of the WB scholarship program, now in its seventh year.

Randby attends Lake Superior College, where she is in the automotive service technology program. She lists her career goals as achieving certification from the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) and going on to open her own repair and body shop. In the future, she would like to hold car care seminars for women so that “more women can learn how important it is to maintain their vehicles and gain basic knowledge of how their vehicles operate.”

Randby is an actively involved student and serves as president of her school’s Auto Service Club. Through the club she volunteers in community events such as Lights on for Safety and World of Wheels. In high school, Randby was an officer in the Skills USA club and participated in state competitions. In her spare time, she enjoys being outdoors as well as working on other machinery.

“To receive such a renowned scholarship feels amazing,” said Randby. “I feel that most men see women in the automotive field as a nuisance but I want to prove that we can really excel in this field. Being a woman in this industry may be tough but I want to stick with it and the Women’s Board scholarship is allowing me to do so.”Jessica Randby

“The Women’s Board Scholarship Committee received applications from talented and deserving young women from all across the country, so I am thrilled to congratulate Jessica on her accomplishments and dedication to pursuing a career in the automotive industry,” said Katie Noga, WB president.

The comprehensive Women’s Board scholarship program awards scholarships not only to post-secondary students, but also to female high school students who plan on entering the automotive field upon graduation. This year a $1,000 high school scholarship was awarded to Jennifer Fleming of Longmont, CO. Chanel Abinader of Jamaica, NY, and Alyssa Schweda of Phoenix, AZ, won the $1,000 technician scholarships.

The Women’s Board is comprised of professional women and men, including company executives, service shop owners, service writers, motor sports figures, association executives and consultants, who are dedicated to informing female audiences about proper vehicle maintenance and safety, while encouraging young people to investigate automotive career choices.
