      If the CCOC had opportunities to raise scholarship money, I'd like us to do something on the order of the Indiana Region of the Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC), which also desired "to find an opportunity to give back to our young people.

      This year, that club's dream became reality as Benjamin Kasting of Ft. Wayne became the first award winner of the Indiana SAAC Merit Scholarship Program. Kasting is a chemistry and music major entering Ohio Northern University, and was recognized at the 35th Anniversary Shelby Spring Fling Banquet. For his efforts, which included an impressive high school grade-point average and outstanding essay highlighting his well-rounded skill sets, Ben will receive a $500 prize toward his freshman tuition.

      The SAAC is a regional car club with membership across about a dozen states. The Spring Fling is one of the few opportunities for its members to spend time together as a whole. Last year, the Indiana SAAC discussed the idea of rewarding young talent within the group and it developed quickly into an annual Indiana SAAC Merit Scholarship open to members, their children and grandchildren who are college-bound and are directing their careers toward automotive-related fields. The award is based on academic achievement and community involvement and requires a written essay and three letters of recommendation.

      The Indiana SAAC believes car clubs are a means to extend one's family. "Treat the members as such and a club will be self-sustaining for generations." This goal has certainly been reinforced by the creation of the scholarship.
