Aug. 30, 2017—The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) announced the first annual Collision Industry Red Carpet Awards Breakfast at the 2017 SEMA Show.

This event will be free to attend, and held on Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 7:30-9 a.m. in Ballrooms D-E in the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino. 

The event will feature some of awards and recognitions from industry organizations highlighting standout individuals and businesses in the collision repair industry.

As part of the morning ceremony, SCRS will deliver the first-ever March Taylor Kina'ole Award. The Hawaiian word Kina'ole is the embodiment of excellence in the highest form.

Many within SCRS and the collision repair industry learned life lessons about Kina'ole from March Taylor; then owner of Auto Body Hawaii in Kailua Kona, Hawaii and SCRS board member. Ten years ago, on August 26th, 2007, March Taylor passed away.

"We all lost an invaluable man, friend, mentor, and ally that day," stated SCRS past chairman Barry Dorn. "March would be the first to tell you that he did nothing "significant" and he was humble beyond belief but he could bridge gaps, change peoples' minds and move progress forward by simply being who he was. That is the legacy that we all must continue. Individuals like March do not come around often, and it is so important to recognize it when they do, encourage it, and to carry on with what he has started and grow it for future generations."
