PTEC Students Visit St. Charles Site for Insight into Potential Career Path

More than 25 students from the Satellite Center for Hahnville and Destrehan high school toured the Emergency Services and Security EOC building, Energy and Environmental Operations control room, and the SCO Oxide II facility.

The Satellite Center, which opened in 2001, provides a progressive learning environment for students embarking on career paths ranging from process technology (PTEC) and engineering to culinary arts and television production.

"The students in the PTEC program are dual enrolled in a PTEC program at a local technical college, so they can actually earn up to seven credit hours for college if they want to pursue this career after high school," said Taylor Domengeaux, SCO Training Coordinator and one of the Dow hosts.
