Selley’s Skills: St. Claude Auto Body’s Dorrian Selley wins Sam Piercey Foundation scholarship

Saint Claude, Manitoba — Dorrian Selley, SkillsCanada National competition winner and technician at St. Claude’s Auto Body has claimed a $750 scholarship, courtesy of the Sam Piercey Foundation.

Selley was named national autobody champion at the SkillsCanada 2022 competition, post-secondary category. He first began his automotive career halfway through high school, when he was hired on at a private body shop.

“I worked there for almost five years,” he told Collision Repair.

Selley’s close relationship with his boss cemented his interest in the industry; in fact, he was the one who suggested Selley take a pre-employment course at Red River College.

The Sam Piercey Foundation was established in memory of Sam Piercey, general manager of Budds’ Collision. The idea first began with Sam Piercey Jr., and the foundation officially launched in December 2017 at the annual Budds’ Collision Pig Roast. The foundation aims to provide annual scholarships and funding to students studying or competing in collision repair or paint across Canada.
