BETHESDA, Md. – The Car Care Council Women’s Board (WB) raised more than $4500 in its silent auction during the 2014 Women’s Board winter meeting, held Feb. 4-5 at the Renaissance Charleston in Charleston, S.C. Items for the auction were donated by WB associate companies and aftermarket supporters, and all proceeds will go to the WB scholarship fund, allowing the WB to award a record number of scholarships in 2014.
 
The Women’s Board will be giving away seven scholarships to female students studying to enter the auto care industry: four to post-secondary students; and three to high school students. The Becky Babcox Women’s Board scholarship recipient, a post-secondary student, will receive $5,000, and a trip to the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas. The WB will administer the 2014 Continental Female Leadership Scholarship, awarding $5,000 to an additional post-secondary student. Two other post-secondary students will receive $4,000 and $3,000, respectively. The top high school senior recipient will receive $3,000, and two others will receive $2,000 each. Winners of all scholarships are selected by representatives of the WB and will be announced in May.
 
“Thanks to our partnership with Continental’s Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket business unit and our second successful silent auction, we will be able to give away $24,000 in scholarship money in 2014,” said Amy Mattinat, Auto Craftsmen Ltd., WB president. “We are very excited to be able to offer both financial support and career mentoring for women pursuing their profession in the auto care industry.”
 
Other highlights of the day-and-a-half WB meeting included a distributor panel, a workshop on personal branding for business and life, a presentation on polarity thinking for leadership skills, along with networking opportunities and committee meetings. The 43 attendees also received .6 CEU credits.
