Press Release: Thomas Bergheim Memorial Scholarship
Created through the Gaston College Foundation, the Thomas Bergheim scholarship honors the lifework of our friend and colleague, Thomas Bergheim (1966-2018), who served the company faithfully as a Senior Field Service Specialist since 2009.
Born in Cologne, Germany, Thomas was a well-respected and hardworking craftsman, a steady and dedicated employee, and a good-hearted friend to many. Thomas always gave his best to his colleagues and his customers, having served HUBER in Germany for many years as an exclusive contractor before joining HUBER Technology stateside. Thomas built friendships, teamwork, comradery and a legacy of excellence in their field service team. He was a key element of HUBER’s success.
HUBER Technology is honoring Thomas’ dedication to his craft through a scholarship created in partnership with Gaston Community College, which affords students the opportunity to learn critical skillsets to propel them toward a fulfilling career, much like the one Thomas built within HUBER.
Each year beginning in 2019, students can apply to receive a scholarship to help them toward Diploma or Degree in any of the following program areas at Gaston College: Industrial Systems Technology, Welding Technology, Mechatronics Engineering Technology, or Manufacturing Technology.
