Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation has a strong commitment to the communities in which it operates and an even stronger commitment to doing what it can to improve the quality of life in those areas. To that extent, I wanted to recap the comprehensive educational outreach undertaken by Cabot and its partners through the first half of 2015.
Career and Technical Education grants
For multiple years Cabot has sponsored the extraordinary work of the Susquehanna County Career & Technology center through equipment donations, in-classroom guidance, and scholarships. This relationship is working well; Cabot decided to increase its reach to other CTC programs in northeast Pennsylvania using SCCTC as a model.
In 2015 Cabot is awarding $10,000 educational assistance grants to six career and technical programs in addition to its continued support of SCCTC. Each grant is made possible through Pennsylvania’s Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.
Cabot applauds the work of each institution and is committed to assisting both students and educators pursue careers in all technical fields, especially those pertaining to the energy industry. Through this funding Cabot wants to make sure as communities grow and jobs expand, it has helped train the workforce of the future.
