Education-Industry United Partnership Excels In Clear Creek ISD

League City, Texas – In a show of partnership with Clear Creek ISD Career Technical Education (CTE) that included both hands-on training and a generous donation of time, talent and equipment, LyondellBasell, Austin Industrial, and other members of  Education-Industry United spent quality time  with the Construction, Metal, and Engineering classes at Clear Creek High School on Friday, February 6, 2015.   

They delivered donations of various materials and safety gear which was donated by Education-Industry United supporting partners including LyondellBasell (represented by Walter Pinto), Austin Industrial (represented by Donnie McCoy), JV Industrial (represented by Larry Hall), and Hagemeyer (represented by Phillip Benskin). The estimated value of the equipment, including arc welders,  safety glasses, welding gloves, cutting goggles, and drill bits, is more than $5,000.

“This type of partnership is extremely important to our mission as career technical educators,” explained CTE Director Dana Morgan. “Giving students an up-close, personal experience and the chance to gain insight into possible career tracks is invaluable.”

The group of industry leaders that included engineers and technicians conducted a mini-career fair, talking with students and demonstrating career fields such as engineering, pipe welding, and scaffolding,. “It is our sincere hope that the Personal Protective Equipment and tools provided will be instrumental in the education of the students at Clear Creek High School,” said Edgardo Colón, BCO Maintenance and Reliability Manager at LyondellBasell.
