The National Automotive Technicians
Education Foundation
(NATEF), in collaboration with the Global Automotive
Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS) Scholarship Fund
, recently announced
the recipients of three scholarships. The ASE 2014 scholarship recipient is
Collin Huber of Waterford, Va. The two $1,000 Michael Busch Memorial Fund
scholarship winners are Lucas Wald of Napeoleon, N.D., and Matthew Bisbee of
Orr, Minn.

The Michael Busch Memorial Scholarship
fund was created in memory of the son of former collision shop owner and ASE
board member Jim Busch, who operated a business in Issaquah, Wash., until his
retirement. Michael was an automotive technology student who tragically lost
his battle with cancer. Each recipient of the Michael Busch scholarship
receives $1,000 to be used toward their automotive education.

“We are honored to support the future of
the automotive service industry through the generous scholarship program
established to honor the memory of Michael,” said Trish Serratore, NATEF
president. “We congratulate this year’s winners and wish them the all the best
in their careers.”

“The partnership with the Michael Busch Memorial Fund
has enabled the GAAS scholarships to help even more students pursue their dream
of starting a successful career in the automotive industry,” said Pete
Kornafel, chairman of the GAAS Scholarship Selection Committee.
