Two Northwood University students have been awarded HDA Truck Pride scholarships.
“Northwood University’s University of the Aftermarket is grateful for its collaboration with HDA Truck Pride to help educate the next generation of professionals in the automotive and heavy duty aftermarket,” said Dr. Thomas Litzinger, AAP, chair of Aftermarket Education.
The recipients are Ayden Fuller, a sophomore from Muskegon, Michigan, and Connor Klein, a freshman from Saginaw, Michigan. Both students are automotive marketing and management majors.
The scholarship is an endowment fund that began in 2005 as a memorial honoring Pete Bley and Jim Burke Sr. The endowment fund was created by distributors, suppliers and industry colleagues to recognize the tremendous contributions that Bley and Burke had made to the industry. The scholarship honors their legacies and recognition for educational support to individuals desiring further training as aftermarket professionals.
“Education is one of our core pillars at HDA Truck Pride and creating paths for the next generation to enter our incredible industry. We are proud to continue this tradition of providing scholarship support for individuals desiring to further their education in the automotive aftermarket,” stated Tina Hubbard, CEO of HDA Truck Pride, North America’s largest and most trusted independent provider of parts and service to the commercial vehicle aftermarket.
