ExxonMobil Announces Scholarship Winners

ExxonMobil celebrated last week the announcement of a multibillion-dollar ethane cracker construction project at its Baytown complex, and marked the occasion by recognizing 30 scholarship recipients who plan to pursue petrochemical careers. The recipients include three students from Alvin Community College.

The expansion project will employ about 10,000 construction workers, create 4,000 related jobs in nearby communities and add 350 permanent positions at the Baytown facility.

Among those from ACC who received scholarships are Krissie Swan, of Galveston, for $2,500, Matthew Mitchell, of Dickinson, for $1,500 and Christopher Del Bello, of Manvel, for $1,000.

More than 50,000 construction trades and petrochemical workers will be needed in the next decade across the Texas Gulf Coast region as refineries expand their capacity and replace retiring workers.

To help fill the demand for skilled workers, ExxonMobil has committed $1 million to the Community College Petrochemical Initiative, a collaboration between nine Texas Gulf Coast community colleges, including ACC.  The initiative aims to recruit and train the next generation of petrochemical workers.

For more information about the Initiative, call 281-352-6540 or visit www.gulfcoastcc.org.
