FORT COLLINS — Steven G. Anderson represents the third generation of leadership at Fort Collins-based Forney Industries, an 86-year-old manufacturer and  distributor  of  metalworking  and  welding products. But while honoring the past, he actively works to build the future.As  a  member  of  the  Front  Range  Community College board of directors, Anderson dedicates his time and company  resources  to  help  train  welding  professionals. “I really am very passionate about this,” Anderson said. “Blue-collar work-ers don’t have the same financial ability to go to a four-year college, and we need those skills in the workforce.”FRCC  offers  a  two-year  associate’s  degree in welding technology, and when that program started growing, it reached out to Anderson, who was eager to help by offering scholarships.
