Miller believes that the Women’s Board scholarship is important because it encourages and empowers women.

“I feel that being a successful female automotive technician will help to continue to show younger generations of women that they can and should pursue whatever career path they enjoy,” Miller said.

Scholarship applications were available to women who have completed at least one year in an ASE-certified, post-secondary automobile technology program and plan on entering the automotive field upon graduation.
