Eleanor Aycock Johnson, president of the National Auto Auction Association (NAAA) and General Manager of the Manheim Auto Auction in Kenly, N.C., attended the Mendenhall School of Auctioneering from June 6-14, 2015.
Raised in an auction family, Johnson's father, Kenneth Aycock, was an auctioneer and established the Aycock Auto Auction in Kenly, which is now Manheim North Carolina.
She graduated with one of the highest grades in the auctioneering class on June 14, 2015.
According to Johnson, she “wished she had made the journey many years ago.”
The next class session, August 1-9, 2015, Mike Browning, VP of the NAAA, will be attending.
