ORANGE, Texas — Golden Triangle Polymers Company LLC donated $100,000 to the Lamar State College Orange Foundation this week to fund the Golden Triangle Polymers Scholarship for students interested in pursuing degrees in industrial systems or pre-engineering.

The Golden Triangle Polymers Scholarship is the largest single donation the school’s foundation has received for a non-endowed scholarship. It will fully fund a two-year degree, including tuition, books, and fees for three students per academic year. Students also may be eligible for the scholarship if taking courses during summer sessions.

“Investing in the next generation workforce is key to ensuring the long-term success of our facility,” said Chad Jennings, plant manager for Golden Triangle Polymers. “We never want finances to be a barrier to having a skilled local workforce, so we’re excited to make this donation and hope it encourages young people to seek out careers in the petrochemical industry.” 

Full-time Lamar State College-Orange students studying industrial systems, which includes degrees in instrumentation, process technology, safety, health and environment, and pre-engineering are eligible for the scholarship. Eligibility for the Golden Triangle Polymers Scholarship will also require that students graduate from a high school in the nine-county Golden Triangle region to encourage participation in the regional workforce. These counties include Orange, Jefferson, Hardin, Jasper, Newton, Liberty, Tyler, Chambers and Galveston.
