Students attend SETX Women in Industry events


Last updated 3/13/2023 at 2:02pm

Orangefield High School students, Jada Greiner, Emily Vercher, Mackenzie Haley, Kaitlyn Jenkins, and Halie Ridley participated in the Women in Industry Leadership Luncheon at the Bob Bowers Civic Center in Port Arthur, Texas on March 7, 2023.

SETX Women in Industry is a newly formed 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was created in 2023, in response to the incredible success of the week-long initiative the group hosted in 2022. The original group was formed by female leaders representing industrial facilities located along the Sabine-Neches Waterway. The primary effort of the organization is to introduce students who are interested in pursuing careers in STEM to industry professionals who can act as mentors. The initiative currently includes a series of coffee chats at each higher learning institution in the area (Lamar University, LSCO, LIT and LSCPA), where students and industry professionals discuss the path to success; speed-mentoring sessions at local high schools, facilitated by the U.S. Coast Guard; and a flagship luncheon where high school and college students have an opportunity to interact and build relationships with female leaders in industry.

The Women in Industries organization came to Orangefield High School on March 9, 2023 to present the Speed Networking and Mentoring activity. Melissa Evans, Natalie Wisby and Patty Chael with Dow, Abbie Begnaud with Entergy, Sarah Skillern, Joanna Martin and Denyse Howard with CP Chem and Orangefield's very own Laura Clark (School Board President) with Olson Engineering lead the Networking and Mentoring activity.
