12 January 2018
The National Auto Auction Association's Warren Young, Sr. Scholastic Foundation has created the Ken Osborn Auction Education Scholarship in honor of the late industry veteran who also held various NAAA leadership positions during his 37-year career in vehicle remarketing. Last December a ceremony was held in Dallas to present Osborn with a plaque commemorating the naming of the scholarship, which recognizes contributions he made in the role of mentor to generations of those working in the auto auction profession.The Osborn Scholarship is one of the nonprofit foundation's 12 merit scholarships totaling $52,000 awarded annually for study at a college or technical institution to eligible full-time employees of NAAA members or the corporate office, their children or grandchildren. Recipients are selected based on a variety of qualifications, including academic record, leadership skills, honors, goals and aspirations, work experience and community involvement.Black Book made the honor possible by agreeing to rename one of the two scholarships it had sponsored by purchasing naming rights.
