NABC, CREF Announce Winners of Chuck Sulkala NABC Appreciation Scholarship

 

The Collision Repair Education Foundation and the National Auto Body Council (NABC) are proud to announce the recipient of the Chuck Sulkala NABC Appreciation Scholarship. 

The Sulkala scholarship program honors NABC Founder and longtime Executive Director Chuck Sulkala, who retired earlier this year. Sulkala is also a Trustee Emeriti of the foundation.


The 2018 Chuck Sulkala NABC Appreciation Scholarship recipient, Cody Bayless (Washburn Tech, Topeka, KS), will receive a $2,000 scholarship to fund his education in the collision industry. Bayless has participated in numerous activities, including Recycled Rides, SkillsUSA and Toys for Tots.


“It is an honor to have the Collision Repair Education Foundation give out the first of what we plan to be an annual scholarship in the name of a family that has given so much to this industry,” said Stacy Bartnik, who is a past chair of both the Foundation Board of Trustees and the National Auto Body Council. “Chuck is one of my mentors and has been an influence on not only my career, but on those of many of us in the industry. This scholarship will help ensure that the Sulkala Family influence continues to help our industry into the future.”
