Automotive Fleet Professional Fleet Manager of the Year for 2015 Brenda Davis, fleet commodity manager for Baker Hughes, recently presented a $5,000 scholarship check donated by the Automotive Fleet & Leasing Association (AFLA) to, Michael Weeks, Ph.D., dean of the Archie W. Dunham College of Business at Houston Baptist University. The university will use the $5,000 to support undergraduate scholarships at the business school.
“It was a real pleasure being able to present these funds to a faith-based university, with classes on business ethics that, I believe, will aid any student going into the business world,” said Davis, who manages a fleet of more than 16,500 vehicles and pieces of motorized equipment.
The scholarship is provided by AFLA, which is a co-sponsor of the AF Professional Fleet Manager of the Year award, and is provided to each year’s recipient to distribute to an academic program of his or her choice.
