Shaw Industries Donation to Fund Scholarships for Industrial Maintenance Students

Shaw Industries recently donated $2,600 to the Aiken Technical College Foundation to fund scholarships for industrial maintenance technology students.

“We hope it will assist getting them through college and preparing them for their next steps, whether it be with our company or another company,” said Eric Boetsch, plant manager for Shaw Industries. “We want to create a better future for whoever gets the scholarship.”

The donation is one of several ways the company is looking to partner with the College and help promote the opportunities that can be available to those earning a two-year degree, he said.

Those interested in applying for a scholarship may do so now through March 1, said Mary Commons, director of the ATC Foundation.

"We are very excited to enter into a partnership with Shaw Industries in support of student scholarship for the Industrial Maintenance program,” she said. “Applicants must have at least a 2.5 GPA, be enrolled full-time and interview with the Shaw Industries leadership team. Four $650 scholarships will be awarded for the next academic year."
