Lamar Energy Center Creates Educational Opportunities for Students Lamar Energy Center, owned and operated by NextEra Energy Resources, recently presented Paris Junior College a check for $5,000 to be used to provide scholarships to two students enrolled in the Electro- Mechanical program beginning in Fall 2009.

“We believe in the Electro-Mechanical program at Paris Junior College and the program’s ability to identify talent from our community,” 

said Lamar Energy Center Plant Manager Jimmie Hopson. “Our plant has received benefits from this program through graduates that have gone on to careers within our organization and we are pleased to be able to support the program and our community in this manner.”

PJC offers two-year Associate of Applied Science degrees in Electro- Mechanical and Electronic Technologies.  The two programs prepare graduates for careers in the growing job market of industrial and electronic maintenance and focuses on a wide range of technologies and systems.

“We have enjoyed a good partnership with Lamar Energy for a number of years,” said PJC President Dr. Pamela Anglin.  “Some of our Electro- Mechanical students have benefited from cooperative opportunities at the plant over the past several years.  The scholarships will help our students and our program immensely.”

The two scholarships will provide a first year and second year full- time student, enrolled in the Electro-Mechanical program, up to $1,250 per semester or $2,500 annually for tuitions, books, and fees.

PJC Dean of Workforce Education Kevin Rose added, “We are grateful for the relationship we have with Lamar Energy Center and appreciate the confidence they have in our Electro-Mechanical program.” Several recent graduates of the PJC program are currently employed by Lamar Energy Center or the parent company.

To apply for the Lamar Energy Center scholarships, contact the Admissions Office at PJC, 2400 Clarksville Street, Paris, TX or by phone, (903) 782-0425 or 800-232-5804.

That's a good start, but a paltry sum for a company that can afford $6M in property taxes.
