By Staff Writer March 09, 2019 498

The National Auto Auction Association (NAAA) has named David Vignes, KAR Auction Services president of remarketing services, and Kenny Jones, Cox Automotive safety and environmental senior director, as Warren Young Fellows.

The honor recognizing their instrumental roles in developing and promoting safety initiatives for the auto auction industry was presented during the association’s recent Safety Summit in Dallas.

NAAA bestowed the award with a $2,500 donation each in their names to NAAA's nonprofit Warren Young, Sr. Scholastic Foundation. A Fellow is a donor at that level, or in whose honor or memory a contribution is made in that amount, to support the scholarship organization.

The corporate auto auction executives join a group of 111 others who have been named fellows. They received a gold medal, a framed commemorative certificate and will have their names engraved on a plaque at NAAA headquarters.

Established in 2004, the foundation has raised more than $2.3 million to help students pursue higher education by awarding $52,000 in merit scholarships annually for full-time study at accredited institutions. It was named in honor of Warren Young, Sr., a pioneer of the auto auction industry who retired after 35 years of service to his profession and NAAA.
