As part of the morning ceremony, SCRS will deliver the March Taylor Kina’ole Award. The Hawaiian word “Kina’ole” is the embodiment of excellence in the highest form. It is often defined as “Doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time, in the right place, to the right person, for the right reason, with the right feeling, the first time.”
The spirit of Kina’ole permeates much of the work of SCRS, instilled in the organization by March Taylor, owner of Auto Body Hawaii in Kailua Kona, Hawaii, and SCRS board member. On August 26, 2007, March Taylor passed away.
The Collision Industry Red Carpet Awards Breakfast places a priority on encouraging and recognizing greatness in individuals, companies and actions in the collision-repair industry, and the excitement and energy of the SEMA Show provide the perfect backdrop for such distinguished presentations.
