A Germantown student has received a scholarship to learn how to repair vehicles at a Tennessee school.

Dominique Davis of Germantown received a $1,000 University of the Aftermarket Foundation scholarship and plans to attend the Nashville (Tenn.) Auto-Diesel College to study auto body collision repair.

Davis was one of 160 scholarship recipients from a pool of more than 500 applicants, according to a news release from the University of the Aftermarket Foundation and the Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium.

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation helps fund education and research into the automotive aftermarket, which provides replacement parts, accessories and other products for vehicles after their original sale.

The aftermarket accounted for $307.7 billion in sales in 2012, according to the website for the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association.
