First CryoWorks Endowed Scholarship Recipient Lands Job with Company

District Seal

In 2017, CryoWorks, Inc. established an endowed scholarship through the Riverside Community College District Foundation in order to provide support to students in the welding program at Riverside City College. One of the first recipients of the $500 scholarship was Nathalie Rosales. Last week, Rosales received another gift from CryoWorks, this time it was in the form of a job offer as a TIG welder/fabricator. 

“She was the perfect candidate for both the scholarship and employment with our company,” Tim and Donna Mast, CryoWorks owners said. “Rosales is a talented welder with a strong work ethic.” 

Obviously, why the Masts invested in her twice. 

“The scholarship made me realize that there were people out there that wanted to see me succeed,” Rosales said. “It’s amazing how things work out. I can’t wait to learn more, perfect my craft and repay those who have helped me get to where I am today. I’m humbled.” 

Rosales is pursuing two certificates in welding technology at RCC. In addition to being a dedicated student, she has served as an AVID tutor and a member of two student clubs. She also donates her time and talents to local organizations, such as the American Military Museum in her hometown of South El Monte, where she is assisting with the restoration of a Japanese reenactment tank. 

CryoWorks, Inc. is a family-owned and operated company in Jurupa Valley that delivers design, sales, installation and service for cryogenic piping systems. The company’s product line includes rigid and flexible cryogenic piping systems and components. 

Companies and individuals are leaving a lasting legacy by investing in an endowed scholarship with the RCCD Foundation. A gift or pledge of $20,000 is invested in order to provide a steady stream of funding in perpetuity.
