Ron Scott, vice president and general manager of the Hobart Institute of Welding Technology, has retired. Scott started his career at the school in 1975 as a welding instructor. He was a graduate of the institute, taking the program twice to learn to weld both left- and right-handed. Scott’s knowledge of welding was immeasurable and he enjoyed sharing it with others. He was instrumental in the growth and expansion of HIWT throughout his 40-plus years with the school.
