ARA scholarship fund renews itself

Former ARA Scholarship recipient Thomas G. Sheftel of Marietta, Georgia, now Thomas G. Sheftel, M.D., sent ARA a letter and a check in the amount of $5,000 to be placed in the Scholarship Foundation fund. Dr. Sheftel was a scholarship recipient in 1972. He explained in his letter, “This money allowed my brother and myself to obtain a quality education at the University of Kansas. The continued support helped us to complete medical school. My sister received an architecture degree at Washington University with the help of the scholarship.”

ARA’s Scholarship Foundation currently chaired by Linda Pitman of Dulaney Auto and Truck Parts of Amarillo, Inc. and managed on staff by Kelly Badillo, ARA’s Director of Member Services, administers the foundation’s funds to assist the children of employees of automotive recycling facilities in paying the costs of attending the colleges of their choice.

ARA’s Scholarship Foundation manages over 30 Perpetually named scholarships. Contributions can be made to the ARA Scholarship Foundation at 3975 Fair Ridge Drive, Suite 20 North, Fairfax, VA 22033. Contributors may add to an existing scholarship with any donation, contribute to a named scholarship with a $1,000 donation or may choose to establish a new honorial or memorial scholarship with a donation of $5,000.
