“The primary mission of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation is to make education more readily available to qualified candidates who seek a career in the aftermarket,” said Rusty Bishop, chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “Because of the generous support of those who have contributed to the University of the Aftermarket Foundation, we are able award more scholarships this year than ever before.”
