Michael Busch Memorial Scholarships Awarded

Presented by the ASE Education Foundation, two honorees received scholarships in recognition of their outstanding academic achievement.

Presented by the ASE Education Foundation, two outstanding students, Ashton Peterson of Wishek, North Dakota and Daniel Zielinski of Addison, Illinois, have been awarded the Michael Busch Memorial Scholarships for the upcoming school year. The two honorees received the scholarships in recognition of their outstanding academic achievement, the Foundation says.

The Michael Busch Memorial Scholarships were created in memory of the son of a former collision shop owner and ASE board member, Jim Busch, who operated a shop in Issaquah, Washington until his retirement. His son, Michael, was an automotive technology student who tragically lost his battle with cancer. 

“Ashton and Daniel are two very worthy recipients of these prestigious scholarships,” said Mike Coley, ASE Education Foundation president. “Each has excelled both academically and as leaders in their schools and communities. Every year, we are honored to be able to award these scholarships in the memory of Michael Busch and we thank the University of the Aftermarket Foundation for their assistance with the administration of the scholarships.”

“Each year, our family is honored to present these scholarships in Michael’s memory,” said Busch. “Ashton and Daniel are well-deserving of this recognition, and we wish them well as they continue their educations. Awarding the Michael Busch Scholarships is a very meaningful way for us to remember Michael by helping to provide support for the next generation of students who are pursuing careers in the collision repair industry.”

Each year, two scholarships are awarded to collision students in Michael Busch’s name. Qualified applicants should be a graduating high school senior or have graduated from high school or received a GED certificate. In addition, the applicants should be enrolled or planning to enroll as a full-time student in a two or four-year-college or an ASE accredited post-secondary collision repair program.
