  • I hope to use that degree in the field of process technology as a refinery or a chemical plant operator. Challenging leads to rewarding and there are great rewards to be made in this industry. I'm totally excited about my future. I'm sure there will be hurdles I'll have to clear but I think I can do it and with Exxon's help with the scholarship and that helps me greatly financially to afford to do it.

  • We have all had to make a lot of sacrifices for each other, but every minute of it has been worth it. I am so thankful to the high school and to WCJC for providing this program and for saving us time and money. I truly hope the school continues to offer ROAR and that many more students take advantage of it.

  • Coming down here changed that. When I first started down here, I didn't know anything about valves, pumps, anything like that, but they're incredibly thorough. They assume you know nothing, and they just build up from that. As a whole, I'd say it's overwhelmingly positive. I really can't think of anything negative to say about it. It's not that hard. If I can do it, you can do it.

  • Sometimes college can be a place where you can get easily lost in the crowd. As a SGA and PTK officer, I want to impact the student population by making them feel part of something great.
