Partnership to Create Educational Programs

In December 2013, Chevron and Benedum Foundation and Western Area Career and Technology Center (WACTC) announced a partnership to create educational programs to support the oil and gas industry.

According to James Denova, vice president of the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, “the grant will be used to create a technical college that will offer Associates degrees in welding and advanced manufacturing, which are high demand occupations in the energy field. WACTC will be one of three high school career centers in the region to start a privately licensed technical college.”
