Jeannie Peng-Armao -- December 18, 2012
PASADENA, Texas – The Lubrizol Foundation has awarded 32 technical education students with $500 scholarships toward their tuition.
Lubrizol recently donated $16,000 to fund 24 scholarships to students majoring in any one of the San Jacinto College Central Campus technical education programs, and eight scholarships to those pursuing careers in process technology.
"The partnership that San Jacinto College has had with Lubrizol is unique," said Jeffrey Parks, dean of industrial and applied technology. "For the past 28 years, Lubrizol has financially assisted students in receiving an education, one that prepares them for employment in the petrochemical field as well as other areas of business and industry. Only good things can be said about this partnership and Lubrizol's continuing commitment to neighboring education communities."
Including this year's donations, the Lubrizol Corporation has donated a total of $245,600 toward technical education at San Jacinto College. The funds have benefited 631 students. Scholarships are awarded to sophomore students who demonstrate high scholastic ability in their programs.
"We want students to realize the value of college," said Chris Hext, Lubrizol community affairs manager. "As someone with eight family members who have come through here, to me, this is the most affordable way to earn a quality education. That's why we at Lubrizol support San Jacinto College."
