STAUNTON, Va. — Tabitha Harris, a student at University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH) with plans to major in diesel technology, has received academic scholarships from Federated Car Care and Women in Auto Care (WiAC) to help her pursue her career.
Ms. Harris is a graduate of Sussex Technical High School in Georgetown, Del., where she studied in the school's automotive technical program. She also worked at Capitol Tire & Auto Service, a predominantly Firestone dealership in Dover, Del., this past summer, according to Federated Auto Parts, which offered her a $2,500 scholarship under its Federated Car Care program.
She also received a $5,000 scholarship from WiAC, which honored her at the WiAC reception in early November during the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.
"We congratulate Tabitha on these tremendous achievements and wish her great success as she continues her education and her automotive career," John Marcum, director of marketing of Federated Auto Parts, said.
"We are proud to have Capitol Tire & Auto Service as a Federated Car Care member and are delighted that scholarships from Federated Car Care and Women in Auto Care will help Tabitha advance her automotive education."
UNOH is a non-profit university located in Lima, Ohio, known for its courses in automotive, diesel and high-performance industries.
