CAWA is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2022 automotive high school teachers' scholarship awards.

Named the Motorcar Parts of America-Selwyn Joffe awards, CAWA provided two scholarships this year to high school teachers to support their automotive programs. 


"CAWA is proud to assist these automotive high school teachers, in part, to assure their programs remain viable and well-resourced for the benefit of their students and our industry," said Rodney Pierini, president and CEO, in announcing the awards.
Recipients of the scholarships include:

  • Keith Benson, Petaluma High School, to purchase parts and supplies for classroom use
  • Chris Lacey, Livingston High School, for an opportunity to get EV training and to bring back student aids to the program

The primary scholarship fundraising effort for this program is CAWA's annual dinner gala, held traditionally the Sunday night before the AAPEX and SEMA shows. This year, the gala will be held Oct. 30 at the Venetian Hotel and is sponsored, once again, by the Motorcar Parts of America. For details, email programs@cawa.org.
