The SAA Thought Leader of Tomorrow Scholarship program was announced at the SAA’s 2012 Summit held at Lear Corporation headquarters in Southfield. Lear Corporation was chosen to host the event in honor of SAA’s 25th anniversary and to celebrate the resurgence of the domestic auto industry.

Larry Silvey, chair of Northwood’s automotive aftermarket management program, states, “With his profound intellect and savvy, coupled with his passion for the industry, Michael will be able to choose to work in any part of this industry. I have no doubt that he will be a prominent leader in this industry in a very short time.”

This scholarship enables me to continue my education while providing me with the chance to develop a network of industry contacts which will aid me in my future endeavors.”
