The BCPC Signing Day event, in partnership with Brazosport College and several local employers, provides high school seniors with an opportunity to obtain entry-level job offers in the petrochemical industry. The 12 Alvin ISD students secured job offers in various career pathways, including welding, construction, manufacturing and automotive. These students were selected after interviewing with over 180 Brazoria County high school students.
"We are thrilled to see so many talented students securing their first job offers through the BCPC Signing Day event," Alvin ISD Superintendent Carol Nelson said in a news release. "In 2019, we had one student participate in BCPC Signing Day and secure their starting position and this year, we have 12! This is a testament to the wonderful CTE staff and their commitment to our students.”
