Welding Training Provides A World Full Of Opportunities


I grew up in El Paso, in Juárez. This is in the borderland in far West Texas. It’s so remote a very simple environment but a very loving environment There is a difference in the pay from the
borderland to the rest of the U.S. People don’t see that there is a lot of opportunities
out there. Education is particularly important in areas
like this. People don’t understand education. If you tell somebody: “I’m going to go to
school…” They don’t understand, they say: “You need
to get a full-time job. You need to help to pay for bills.” I struggled for 7 years at minimum wage working
odd jobs just so I can go to school. Because I knew that once I go to school the
benefits will be greater. That kind of let me educate people
that you won’t be a CEO coming out of college but it will be better, there will be more
opportunities. We do work with colleges, not only here in
Harlingen, but other colleges. We donate cutting-edge welding equipment
and welding supplies to high schools. I met Manny while working at CRC-Evans. Manny was part of the field services
and we were working together on procedures and now he is an instructor for TSTC. Stanley Oil & Gas provide us with support
when it comes to the machinery and the knowledge for students to be able to go out there and
perform a quality job in this community. We are pretty far down, away from the main
hub there in Houston and to be able to gain that equipment all
the way down here is a big eye-opener for some of the students. So for us to be able to provide it
and to help a less lower income type area to expand
is extremely important. Instructors here are just preparing them enough
to get the foot in the door not be afraid of the industry and then grow
from there. Stanley Oil & Gas and CRC-Evans help local
communities because they provide kids with a way out of
what the norm is. There are other options
and that means a lot to me.
