This scholarship honors the memory of Dane Skutt, a founder of Mountain Hardware and Sports. Dane and his partners founded their business in 1977. Dane was passionate about treating customers as family. He never wavered from his core belief that his company would be the leader in outstanding guest service. The principles he taught and lived by are still part of Mountain Hardware’s core values. Dane and his partners, Greg Hovorka and Howard Jones, sold the company to their employees through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan in 2001. The employee owners want to recognize our founder and friend.
