SCRS, March Taylor Education Foundation partner to help students
April 5, 2011 — The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) and the March Taylor Education Foundation are working together to help students attend the Missouri and Kansas (MO-KAN) SCRS chapter’s Education Night of Achievement.
The organizations are making it financially possible for 55 students to attend the event, which is a celebration of collision repair technical education. The highlight of the event is an award ceremony recognizing three top students in the Missouri and Kansas area.
The foundation, which provides grants in support of education in the collision repair industry, is sponsoring 25 students. SCRS is sponsoring 30.
“It's no secret that young technicians are the future of the industry, and it is heartening to see the MO-KAN chapter step up and consistently do what it can to ensure quality prospects join the workforce,” said SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg. “The Education Night of Achievement places one of our most vital resources in a well-deserved spotlight. We are only too glad to provide the support needed to facilitate this important mission.”
Dale Matsumoto, the foundation’s administrator, said the decision to sponsor students was an easy one.
“March [Taylor Education Foundation] was an avid supporter of education, specifically that which goes into the making of the future technicians of our industry, he said.
