The New York State Automotive Aftermarket Association (NYSAAA), in conjunction with the University of the Aftermarket Foundation, has awarded three academic scholarships in honor of John J. Lorenzen and Debbie J. Tranello to New York residents who will be attending college in the fall.

Each of following individuals have each been awarded a $700 scholarship for their academic pursuits:

    Cameron Sprague, Rochester, New York – Alfred State College
    Edelyn Nunez Abreu of Bronx, New York – Delhi University
    Dawson Mead of Lowville, New York – Jefferson Community College

“The University of the Aftermarket Foundation commends NYSAAA for awarding these scholarships to three outstanding and well-deserving students,” said Bob Egan, MAAP, chairman, University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “NYSAAA has a long history of being providing industry educational opportunities in the state of New York and we are honored to be able to administer these scholarships on behalf of them.”

The New York State Automotive Aftermarket was founded in 1949 and is headquartered in Syracuse, New York. The association was founded to bring together the owners of businesses engaged in the wholesale distribution of automotive aftermarket parts and products. NYSAAA keeps those members informed on how to comply with state and federal laws and regulations as well as anything that would assist them in running their businesses more efficiently and profitably.
