Service King donates $10,000 for student scholarships
Aug. 22, 2012—Service King Collision Repair Centers has joined the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s Industry Leadership Circle through a $10,000 donation to the organization.
The Education Foundation said the donation will be used to provide scholarships to post-secondary collision repair students near the markets that Service King’s repair facilities serve. The student scholarships will be included as part of the Education Foundation’s scholarship and tool grants that will be awarded next spring.
“We are honored to be able to contribute to such an important foundation,” said Danny Wilkins, associate vice president of staffing and development for Service King. “Supporting collision repair education is key to growing the industry so that we continue employing highly skilled technicians and painters for years to come. We are excited about this opportunity and look forward to a lasting partnership.”
“Thanks to Service King for supporting the Collision Repair Education Foundation and joining our efforts in supporting collision repair school programs and their students,” said Clark Plucinski, executive director of the Education Foundation. “Through Service King’s donation, collision students located near their repair facilities will have the opportunity to apply for financial support this upcoming spring. We welcome Service King to this group of industry leaders and commend them on providing support opportunities for collision students in their markets.”
