ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Chevron celebrates their partnership with Odessa College Wednesday, March 28, 2018, by donating $10,000 in scholarship money.

According to Dr. Diane Carrasco, dean of Career Technical Workforce Education, Chevron donates equipment and monetary funds for renovations often but the most needed item is money for students.

"We know that one of the main reasons our students struggle to complete or even come to college is due to financial restraints. So what this scholarship money is going to allow us to do is help students pay for tuition and books and any materials and supplies they need to complete the program,"  said Carrasco.

Odessa College and Chevron want to develop the next generation of the energy industry workers within the community and prepare them for the workforce.

"What they're training on in the classroom is what they are going to see in the workplace," said Carrasco.
