Multi Parts Supply (MPS) has announced the four recent recipients of the MPS scholarships awarded through the Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS). This year sets a record for the number of scholarships granted in a single year by the aftermarket auto parts developer and manufacturer.  

The recipient of the $2,500 MPS International Aftermarket Scholarship is Andrew Cameron from Northwood University, Michigan Campus. Andrew comes from a family of automotive enthusiasts. Soon after attending the AAPEX show in Las Vegas, he decided that joining the automotive aftermarket was his career goal.

The recipient of a $1,000 scholarship honoring MPS’ clients is Nicole Kelsey. Nicole is currently pursuing a B.A. with a double major in management and marketing. She plans to obtain an A.A. in automotive technology in the near future. Nicole is a car fanatic and is interested in the ever-improving world of the aftermarket.

The second $1,000 MPS scholarship went to Daniel Egge, a student at Northwood University at Cerritos College, Cerritos, California. Daniel is the fourth generation to join Egge Machine Co. Egge Machine was founded in 1915 and produces internal engine components for vintage automobiles. Daniel plans to lead the company into its next 50 years in the aftermarket.

Finally, the $1,000 Peter Klotz Scholarship recipient is Lara O’Shields. Lara has already obtained three ASE certifications, and is planning on attaining all eight before the end of 2013. Her long-term goal is to open an all female-owned and staffed repair shop. The Peter Klotz scholarship was established to honor lifetime MPS friend and industry stalwart, the late Peter Klotz.

MPS President Brian Cohn commented, “We are delighted with the quality of all the 2013 applicants. We are confident that all four scholarship recipients will go on to do great things in the aftermarket industry, and we are thrilled to be a part of that process.”
