On Saturday, six members of our Youth Build group attended a chapter-sponsored TIG Welding Workshop presented by Daniel Hurst. Daniel teaches the welding program at Red Mountain High School in Mesa, AZ, has 30 years’ experience in the welding industry and holds 25 certifications from the American Welding Society. He and Harald Grovers were gracious enough to travel up to Overgaard and share their expertise with our enthusiastic members. Not only was it a fun-filled day, but everyone came away with a newly-learned skill.
