2018 Todd Kinnikin Memorial
METALfab Scholarship Recipient
MICHAEL GUFFEY, IRON DÉCOR, TULSA, OKLAHOMA
MICHAEL RELATES HIS EXPERIENCE at METALfab 2018:

First and foremost,I would like to thank NOMMA and the Upper Midwest Chapter
for the Todd Kinnikin Scholarship. I am truly honored to receive it. I would also like
to thank Jason and LaWanna Axtell, my Iron Decor family for providing the means
necessary to attend METALfab 2018.
This experience was very educational for a young fabricator like myself. For
example, I watched Dave Filippi navigate through FabCad, allowing me to gain more
knowledge on the way that it works. That was an extremely educational experience
for me to have. I hope to be able to use this tool efficiently and effectively in our
shop in the near future. Another class I really enjoyed was the finishing-patinas.
Philippe Fiers is a brilliant mind in this industry. I learned so much from his class
and will be able to apply that knowledge in our shop immediately. Socializing after
class hours with Philippe, I learned that he worked on the Statue of Liberty and
the original World Trade Center Towers. Both of those structures/works of art are
amazing and beautiful, and I am honored to have met him.
These experiences are just a small
portion of the true experience you
get when you attend METALfab. I will
highly recommend this event to anyone
in the industry who is not a member of
NOMMA.
Thanks again for this experience!
Michael Guffey
