Youth and education is a huge part of Pioneer’s community focus in South Texas. We often partner with various institutions, schools and districts to help students of all ages succeed in their work and in their life. It’s through these relationships that we have found many programs and opportunities to lend our support.
Since the Eagle Ford Shale gas formation was discovered in 2008, towns throughout the 14-county region have seen an increase in population and the need for a skilled, oil-industry workforce. To help South Texas residents take advantage of the diverse oil and gas jobs available, Pioneer sponsors specialized training and curriculum offered at area colleges. These include:
Pioneer’s partnership with these schools has grown substantially throughout the years and is made stronger by the shared goal of academic advancement.
Over the years Pioneer’s partnerships at the elementary and secondary levels have strengthened as well. Working together with independent school districts in Bee, DeWitt and Victoria counties, we look for areas of need that will enhance student learning in math and science. Opportunities have included the delivery of hundreds of graphing calculators for advanced placement math students, assistance with acquiring new microscopes and science lab equipment for high schools, and sponsoring school district foundations that offer grants to faculty, staff and students.
At the helm of Pioneer’s success is a knowledgeable and experienced management team and Board of Directors.
