Kilgore College President Dr. Bill Holda is pleased to announce that the KC Process Technology Program was awarded $318,250 to purchase training equipment.


The grant is a part of the Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) Job Building Fund which “provides grants to community colleges to acquire building and equipment needed to train workers for high-growth industries throughout the state in an era of rapidly increasing enrollment.”


According to Dewey Greer, KC Process Technology Instructor, the money will be used to purchase a “hands-on operations training skid” which is a large-scale piece of equipment that will allow students hands-on training of activities regularly undertaken by process operators within the refining, petrochemical and oil and gas industries.


With the total cost of the equipment at $335,000, KC will use $16,750 to fund the remainder of the project.


KC was one of only 18 community colleges in Texas to receive this grant.
