KILGORE — Representatives from Chevron Corporation were on campus yesterday to present the Kilgore College Process Technology Program $10,000 for a third-straight year. Donation money will be used for scholarships and equipment for the Process Technology – Petroleum Specialty Program. Chevron was also on campus recruiting students for summer intern and trainee jobs.
Dewey Greer, KC’s Process Technology instructor, said that Chevron is one of the biggest supporters of the Process Technology Program at KC. “Along with donations of money for scholarships and equipment needs, they have been hiring graduates of process technology every year since we started a partnership,” Greer said. “We will continue to work toward meeting Chevron’s expectations of students who are completing a process technology degree here at Kilgore College.”
Since the Process Technology Program’s inception in 2008, 55 students have graduated from the program and Chevron has hired 16 of them.
