Shintech Louisiana Presents $44,640 to River Parishes Community College Foundation for Scholarship Program

River Parishes Community College (RPCC) is pleased to announce a generous donation from Shintech Louisiana, totaling $44,640, to the RPCC Foundation's scholarship program. This significant contribution underscores Shintech Louisiana's commitment to supporting education and fostering local talent. 

RPCC’s scholarship program aims to assist high school seniors and college students pursuing careers in high-demand fields such as millwright, welding, pipefitting, electrical instrumentation, process technology, and other industrial and construction roles. By investing in the education of these students, Shintech Louisiana is promoting a sustainable approach to local workforce development, ensuring a steady pipeline of skilled professionals ready to thrive in the industry. 

"We are incredibly grateful to Shintech Louisiana for their continued support and generous contribution to our scholarship program," said Quintin Taylor, Chancellor of RPCC. "These funds will provide invaluable opportunities for our students, helping them to achieve their educational and career goals in essential industrial and construction trades." 

The check presentation took place this week at RPCC’s Westside Campus, with representatives from both Shintech Louisiana and the college in attendance. This partnership reflects a shared vision of nurturing local talent and providing the resources necessary for students to succeed in their chosen career paths. 

"Shintech Louisiana is proud to support River Parishes Community College and its mission to educate and train the next generation of industry professionals," said Danny Cedotal, Vice President of Manufacturing for Shintech. “Skilled construction craft workers are needed locally for both contract and direct hire maintenance roles at our facilities. Providing scholarships for talented individuals to seek education and training closer to home makes perfect sense because a well-trained local talent pool not only helps Shintech hire local, it helps all of the businesses in our area hire local.” 

The RPCC Foundation is dedicated to enhancing educational opportunities and providing financial assistance to deserving students. This donation from Shintech Louisiana will play a crucial role in helping students gain the skills and knowledge needed to excel in their future careers. 

“We are grateful for Shintech Louisiana’s generous donation to the RPCC Foundation’s scholarship fund,” said RPCC Foundation Board Chair Anna Skias. “We promise to be responsible stewards of both Shintech’s donation to the scholarship fund and their trust in our institution.”
