            Hobart Institute of  Welding  Technology (HIWT), dedicated  to welding training  and
            education excellence, has been named a Military Friendly School® for 2013 by Victory
            Media Inc., the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life,
            ranking HIWT in the top 15% of all colleges, universities, and trade schools nationwide
            that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and
            spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

            “Inclusion  on  the  2013  list  of  Military  Friendly  Schools®  shows  Hobart  Institute’s
            commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean
            Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs and Vice President at Victory Media.   “As interest in
            education  grows  we’re  thrilled  to  provide  the  military  community  with  transparent,
            world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.”

            “The competition for our 2013 Military Friendly Schools® list was fierce and as a result
            we raised the already stringent criteria to a higher benchmark,” said Rich McCormack,  U.S. soldier welding  on a tank  being
            Publisher, G.I. Jobs Magazine.  “Your school is among the elite.  Clearly you have an  restored by the Spartan Brigade outside
            interest in recruiting military students, and I urge you to augment your already stellar   Mosul, Iraq.
            efforts by continuing to improve your military-friendliness each year. ”

            “We are very proud of this honor,” said Brenda Scott, Director of Compliance & Student
            Services.  “It reflects our efforts in working with members of the military and veterans who have made sacrifices in defense of
            our nation. We’re proud to be recognized as an institution that is making an effort to embrace and accommodate them.”
