Each year, the Chevron Pascagoula Refinery awards scholarships to students enrolled in the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (MGCCC) process technology or maintenance programs.
This year, the refinery also awarded $2,000 in scholarships to four graduating high school seniors who will pursue studies in these programs.
“Our workforce development program and partnership with MGCCC has been very successful through the years,” explained Amy Brandenstein (PGPA). “By expanding the scholarships to high school students, we hope to encourage even more young people to consider a career in manufacturing.”
The scholarship will be offered again to seniors graduating in 2018. It is open to Jackson County residents, and is based on scholastic performance, class participation and attendance, leadership and teamwork skills, and communication.
