      Arnold Motor Supply has officially opened its new Lincoln, Nebraska, location at 2811 W O St.
      Lincoln residents are most likely familiar with the West O location and its roots dating back to the early 1980s as Snow Auto Supply. Joe H. Snow served as a colonel in the U.S. Air Force for 28 years before starting the family business. His son Spencer continued the legacy in 1998 and has been managing the store for the past 25 years.
      “We’ve wanted to enter the Lincoln market for many years and have had a long relationship with Spencer Snow,” said Eric Johnson, president and managing partner at Arnold Motor Supply. “We’re excited to bring our automotive and commercial vehicle focus to the location while continuing the strong paint and refinish capabilities Snow Auto Supply has always provided the community,”
      Arnold Motor Supply entered into agreement with Snow Auto Supply and officially purchased the business earlier this month. The store has an extensive selection of replacement parts for automotive, heavy-duty trucks, collision (including PPG refinish paint), agriculture and fleet applications.
      “We also have the advantage of daily deliveries from our distribution centers and surrounding stores,” added Mike Molle, vice president of store operations at Arnold Motor Supply. “Having a readied supply of parts ensures that whether you’re a DIYer or professional repair shop, we’re going to get you the parts you need.”

      Advance Auto Parts Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Advance Auto Parts, recently announced the first five recipients of its scholarship commitment to Wake Technical Community College (Wake Tech) and its new Hendrick Center for Automotive Excellence.
      The scholarships are part of a larger commitment by the Advance Auto Parts Foundation that also includes a first-of-its-kind recruitment initiative aimed at increasing student diversity in the school’s automotive systems technology and collision repair programs to help address the nationwide technician shortage. 
      Over the next five years, Advance Auto Parts Foundation will support 25 students enrolled in Wake Tech’s automotive degree programs by funding $5,000 unrestricted scholarships for each student to offset educational and living expenses, plus a one-time $600 stipend to purchase tools needed for studies.
      The first five recipients of these scholarships were nominated by high school guidance counselors and selected by Wake Tech. They include:  
      ·       Bryant Torres Garcia ofEast Wake High School  
      ·       Amiya Hall of South Garner High School 
      ·       Alexander Kirschenbauer of East Wake High School  
      ·       Waylen Bryce McLeod of East Wake High School 
      ·       Javai Thomas O’Briant of East Wake High School  
      These scholarship recipients will begin their training in the Automotive Systems Technology degree program in the fall 2022 semester.  
      “Automotive repair jobs offer competitive pay, the opportunity to continue learning new skills and the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping someone get their vehicle back on the road safely,” said Tom Greco, president and chief executive officer of Advance Auto Parts. “Despite the many positives associated with careers in our industry, the technician shortage is worsening. This is one of the reasons we are so thrilled to partner with Wake Tech and help support students from all backgrounds and experiences who want to explore careers in automotive service and repair.”  
      The scholarship announcement follows the opening of Wake Tech’s new $42 million Hendrick Center for Automotive Excellence, a more than 100,000-square-foot facility on the college’s Scott Northern Wake Campus in Raleigh. The new facility allows the college to triple the number of students in its automotive systems technology program and add a new collision repair program.  
      “The Advance Auto Parts Foundation’s support enables us to directly address automotive technician workforce and diversity needs,” said Scott Ralls, president of Wake Technical Community College. “We are grateful to Advance for their partnership in awarding the scholarships and within the larger programs that our new Hendrick Center supports.” 
      In addition to a $200,000 gift from the Advance Auto Parts Foundation, Advance Auto Parts contributed $50,000 to outfit new tool rooms that support student learning. The tool rooms are branded DieHard in celebration of DieHard’s new lifetime-warranty hand tools, which exceed ANSI/ASME standards and feature an anti-slip open-end design on all combination wrenches, a driver handle designed for more ergonomic shape and a line of ratchets created for better wear resistance and strength than other bit materials, according to the company.
