About Mark and Pat Hardwick

Mark and I opened up Ultimate Technical Academy in 2003, locating it first in the St. Louis, Missouri area due to a variety of reasons, even though we lived in Little Rock, Arkansas. Mark had to travel back and forth each week of class.  Since then, most of the reasons for locating in St. Louis have changed and we were able to relocate the school back home to the Little Rock area in August 2006.

We are extremely pleased with our facility and thankful of how everything seems to have fallen into place for us. We couldn't have asked for a better location, it is convenient to the airport, the hotel, many restaurants, with our home only about 20 minutes away and also quite a bit of family close by. Not only that, but we have a nice lake in our back field, so any afternoon when Mark gets that feeling he can just go drop a fishing line.

Mark enjoys hunting and fishing, while I am an animal lover with a few cats, two black labs and a couple of quarter horses. We enjoy camping, boating  and spending time  with friends and family.

We have three grown sons; Zack (31), Caleb (28), and Stanley (25).  Zack is in the Army Reserves, he and his wife Danielle have provided us with our wonderful, fabulous, funny grandson, " Wyatt" who is 3 years old. Caleb has worked as a Service Technician for a local HVAC company for around 8 years now. Stanley just graduated nursing school. We are lucky that all three boys live in the Little Rock surrounding area, so we are able to spend time with each one. Did I mention that I had a grandson!! lol.
