The Baker Workforce Development Center received a donation from ExxonMobil on March 30 that will enhance training for students hoping to earn high-demand craft careers.
The ExxonMobil Polyolefins Plant in Baton Rouge donated office equipment, functioning pumps and motor bases to provide hands-on training for the center’s millwright students.
The items will improve students learning experiences, Girard Melancon, Baton Rouge Community College’s director of workforce development, said.
On hand for the donation were Baker Mayor Harold Rideau, ExxonMobil Polyolefins Plant Manager Angela Zeringue and students, craft instructors and supporters of the Baker Workforce Development Center, 3262 Baker Blvd.
