Foundation Board welcomes Bob Savage
Mr. Savage retired from ArcelorMittal Dofasco as VP Manufacturing in 2012
The Mohawk College Foundation is pleased to welcome Bob Savage to its Board of Directors.
“Over the years I have watched Mohawk College grow and achieve great status as a postsecondary institution. Its alumni have made impressive and important contributions in so many disciplines–many of them right here in Hamilton. I am really excited to work with my fellow Foundation board members to ensure that Mohawk is the college of choice for students in the years to come. For me, this is a great opportunity to give back to Hamilton, a city that has given so much to me.”
