In the gotcha-moment of the convention, President Marty Hollingshead (left), pictured with Sandy Blalock (right), announces Theresa Colbert (center) as ARA Member of the Year for her relentless effort to build her recycling facility, Recycled OE Parts, from scratch after adversity in getting it established. She was also honored for her willingness to help others in the industry with her day job expertise at Car-Part.com, and her association fundraising efforts through the years at state and national conventions. Not a dry eye in the house! Congratulations Theresa, well-deserved!
