Barbara and Richard Couch Hypertherm Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $2,500
Awards Available: 2

Richard Couch founded Hypertherm, Inc in Hanover, NH in 1968. Barbara Couch joined him at Hypertherm in 1987 and together they have since built a global market-leading company known as much for its engineering innovations as for its "Best Place to Work" culture. Barbara and Dick Couch have always been guided by their values of focusing on developing their Associates, sharing rewards across the company, and creating company 
growth not for growth's sake but for more opportunities for the Associates at Hypertherm. These values motivated their partial transition for Hypertherm to an ESOP in 2001 and to a 100% ESOP in 2014. They wanted all Associates to be beneficiaries of the growth they were all building together.

Barbara and Dick Couch's personal values are deeply entrenched in Hypertherm's corporate mission, which includes an equal focus on promoting the well-being and development of their Associates. They see education as a key way to unlock development potential and open doors to earned opportunities. Both Barbara and Dick have worked tirelessly at Hypertherm and serving on local, regional, and national committees to further 
education opportunities for all. It is most fitting that there is a Barbara and Richard Couch Hypertherm Scholarship available to support a path forward, first and foremost to the children of current Hypertherm Associates and to any student seeking a fulfilling career in engineering and technical fields.
