Hobart Institute of Welding Technology Announces Five Scholarship Winners
August 25, 2009
The Hobart Institute of Welding Technology in Troy has announced five area high school students as winners of the Hobart Brothers Company Scholarship. This scholarship, which is offered in conjunction with the Troy Foundation, provides the students with $2,000 in funds that can be applied toward their tuition at HIWT during the upcoming academic year.
This year’s winners are: Brandon Livingston of New Weston; Treg Hutchinson of Versailles; Fred Noe, Jr. of Dayton; Zachary Cox of Troy; and Jerry Strain of Union, Ohio.
The Hobart Brothers Company Scholarship, one of several available through the Troy Foundation, was established to support area students interested in pursuing welding skills at the HIWT. Five $2,000 scholarships are awarded annually. To be eligible for the scholarship, the applying students must hold a high school diploma, submit letters of recommendation, and provide a statement of how and why they are pursuing a welding career, along with what goals they wish to achieve at the HIWT. Priority for winners is given to children or grandchildren of employees at one of the ITW Welding Companies, such as Hobart Brothers Company, then to a graduate of one of the local high schools, including Miami, Darke, Shelby, Preble, Montgomery or Mercy County, and finally to all other scholarship applicants.
The Hobart Institute of Welding Technology is the one of the largest welding schools in the United States and is an incorporated non-profit organization. The HIWT has trained over 85,000 students from around the world since it was founded in 1930, and its purpose is to help students develop marketable welding skills through quality training at a minimum cost.
