BBB Industries, LLC (BBB) is excited to announce the winner of the Remanufacturing ACE Awards Scholarship.
The winner of the $1,000 Remanufacturing ACE Awards scholarship is Mary Grace Boatright. Boatright is a Junior, majoring in Supply Chain Management in the Raymond J. Harbert College of Business at Auburn University. This scholarship was established to encourage future industry leaders to become more engaged with remanufacturing.
Remanufacturing is a comprehensive and rigorous industrial process by which a previously sold, leased, used, worn, or non-functional product or part is returned to a “like-new” or “better-than-new” condition, from both a quality and performance perspective, through a controlled, reproducible, and sustainable process.
“I am honored to be selected as the recipient of the Remanufacturing ACE Awards Scholarship. I am grateful to BBB Industries and the Remanufacturing Industries Council for their generosity,” Boatright said. “I will complete my undergraduate education in May of 2022, and thanks to the RIC and BBB, I am one step closer to my goal.”
This marks the third year that the Remanufacturing ACE Awards Scholarships were issued. The scholarship was presented to Don Bigler, Chairman of the Board, BBB Industries, in recognition of his efforts to advocate for the remanufacturing industry at a Remanufacturing ACE Awards ceremony on October 9, 2019. Don founded BBB over 30 years ago and has since grown the company to become the leader in the remanufacturing of starters, alternators, hydraulic and air disc brake calipers, power steering products, and turbochargers for the OEM, personal and commercial vehicle aftermarket industries.
“It’s an honor to have BBB’s impact on remanufacturing recognized and be able to recognize an Auburn student with a scholarship opportunity,” Bigler said. “Organizations like the RIC are critical to the awareness of remanufacturing and its continued growth. I hope we build upon our current efforts to inspire the next generation to pursue a career in the industry.”
