Loenbro funds 3 Dual-Credit Welding Scholarships
Posted Date: 02/11/2014


Loenbro donated financial resources to Great Falls College MSU for three (3) dual-credit welding scholarships each valued at $1,248. These scholarships were awarded to 3 worthy seniors in Great Falls Public Schools. The scholarship recipients are Gavin Vogel and Jesse Kronovich from Great Falls High and Cole Rhodes from Charles M. Russell High School.

Stewardship is an essential part of Loenbro's core values and was the primary reason they chose to give.  Through the dual-credit welding scholarships Loenbro is providing high school students access to advanced training opportunities and helping to build a skilled workforce.    "We are always looking for high quality workers and these scholarships will help address that need, but most importantly this is the right thing to do whether these young men come to work for us or not," stated Paul Leach, Loenbro president and co-founder.

Founded in 1998 by Paul and Jon Leach, Loenbro began as a small team of welders focusing predominantly on refinery projects throughout Montana. Today, Loenbro offers a variety of energy construction and maintenance services with a team of 500 employees.


The GFC MSU Welding Technology program is two semesters long; students complete their Certificate of Applied Science degree (CAS) at the end of the second semester. Tuition and fees for the 2 semester program is approximately $3088. The college offers the program to dual enrollment high school students at half the tuition and lab fees. The high school students or their parents must cover the remaining tuition balance.
