Two Students Awarded Scholarships In Memory Of George Segal

Recipients will receive $1,000 scholarship awards.


RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — Two students have been selected as recipients of scholarships awarded in honor of George Segal, chairman of ASA/Sanel, who passed away in August 2014.

Recipients of the $1,000 scholarship awards from the University of the Aftermarket Foundation are:

•Nicholas Conti of Falconer, N.Y., attending Alfred State in the automotive service technician program
•Michael deMontigny of Frenchville, Maine, attending Northern Maine Technical College in the diesel hydraulics program

“Our dad spent his career in the automotive aftermarket; he grew up in the business. He really enjoyed being with customers, suppliers and team members,” said Bobby Segal, COO and treasurer of ASA/Sanel Auto Parts. “These scholarships are a fitting tribute to his memory and an investment in the future of the industry.”

Additional scholarship funding comes from industry contributions provided by individuals, companies and foundations. Contributions can be made payable to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation, c/o Susan Medick at the Auto Care Association, and sent to 7101 Wisconsin Ave., Suite 1300, Bethesda, Maryland 20814.

Since 1986, the University of the Aftermarket Foundation has funded millions of dollars of scholarships, grants, research and ongoing educational programs to help develop a strong, knowledgeable aftermarket work force. The foundation encourages industry support, including donations for the purpose of honoring or memorializing individuals or otherwise recognizing special events, to help ensure the continued availability of training and education that strengthen the industry.
