Spiradrill is committed to the communities where we live and work with a focus of enriching lives and making a lasting impact.
The Chip Wilkinson Memorial Scholarship
In memory and honor of our late owner and president, Chip Wilkinson, Spiradrill and the Wilkinson family have established the Chip Wilkinson Memorial Scholarship.
Three scholarships will be awarded to students from our surrounding schools in Fayette and Bastrop counties that are looking to continue their education through trade school or a four-year mechanical engineering program. Annually, one $10,000 scholarship will be awarded to a student pursuing a mechanical engineering degree, and two $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to students attending trade school to pursue certifications in welding, fabricating, or diesel mechanics.
To learn more about each scholarship, visit Austin Community Foundation.
