UAF Recognizes, Thanks Volunteer Scholarship Reviewers

Additional volunteers needed, UAF says.

As the University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) awards hundreds of scholarships for the 2021-22 school year, the foundation takes the opportunity to acknowledge the individuals who volunteered their time during April and May to review and evaluate the applications and to call for more volunteer evaluators.

“Volunteers are the backbone of many non-profit organizations, and they certainly are for UAF,” said Bob Egan, MAAP, UAF chairman. “One of the most valuable and needed volunteer roles that is critical for the success of our scholarship program is the volunteer evaluators, and we thank all those who donated their time to this important program.”

“Every year, we get the opportunity to read inspiring stories of students who have a real passion to join the automotive aftermarket and we get to help support those dreams. It is a very rewarding process and I feel excited for the future of our industry with these students as our next generation of leaders,” said Danielle Sonnefeld, AAP, chair of the UAF scholarship committee. “We are fortunate to have reviewers that have been supporting the program for more than 20 years and welcome additional volunteers.”
