The Service Specialists Association has established the Cara Giebner SSA-GAAS Scholarship fund.

Giebner was the association's longtime executive director, who retired at the end of 2007. Liz Burleson-Barrett, outgoing Service Specialists Association President, made the announcement during the association's recent annual meeting in New Orleans.

"This was a unanimous gesture on the part of the SSA Board of Directors," said Burleson-Barrett. "It seems like an ideal way for us to honor Cara. As so much more than just the association manager, for 27 years Cara has been a close personal friend and beloved associate to many SSA members."

The scholarship in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded to a deserving student each year who is enrolled in a heavy-duty oriented educational program and planning a career in the vehicle aftermarket.

The scholarship will be administered by and awarded through GAAS (The Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium) which annually funds scholarships to encourage students to follow careers in the aftermarket. More info:
