Welding Faculty


Mark Smith

I was born and raised in Southern California. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Cal State Fullerton in 1980 and worked as a welding contractor for 12 years. In 1992, I moved my family to Redding, CA, to pursue teaching at Shasta College in the welding program. I am an American Welding Society “Certified Welding Inspector.” I’m married, have three sons and three grandchildren, and I love teaching, hunting, fishing, my dog and playing with my grandkids.
