The Automotive Marketing department at Northwood University named Nicole Paparella for general chair of the 2008 Northwood University International Auto Show and Blake Wilcox vice chair.

Northwood University students will host the 45th annual NUIAS on October 10, 11 and 12.

Paparella is in her fourth year at Northwood University pursuing a triple major in automotive marketing, advertising and business management. "Auto Show for me is more than a project," she says. "It's more than an extracurricular activity. It becomes your life."

Wilcox, a junior at Northwood University, is studying Automotive Marketing, Banking and Finance, and Management. He has been involved with the Auto Show every year he has attended Northwood University and won Best Heavy Truck Walk-Around for last year's show.
