C-MORE Members Visit Sweeny Refinery
November 30, 2012
In November 2012, educators from Wharton County Jr. College and
local school districts visited Sweeny Refinery. Their mission was
to learn more about careers in refining so they could increase
student awareness and encourage students to consider STEM (Science,
Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) careers. Careers in
operations, crafts, engineering and business were discussed and the
educators participated in job shadowing with refinery employees to
experience refinery jobs first hand. Educators also met with senior
refinery management for a roundtable discussion on how to better
inform students of potential STEM careers.
