WHAT IS Future 42?
Work For GREAT COMPANIES
The Carroll County Training Consortium began in 1999 with a school-to-work grant to supply the industry with high demand, work ready individuals for our region. Industries such as LG&E-KU, NAS, Nucor, Dow, PMC and the Ohio Valley Charities provide last dollar scholarship funds for students to pursue a degree in high-wage, in-demand fields of study. Students are enrolled full time and must maintain a 2.5 GPA or higher, for the scholarship to automatically renew.
Analytical Lab Technician, Dow Carrollton Quality Assurance Department
As a senior lab technician, I perform analytical tests on raw materials and product samples, and I help develop new or improved testing methods. One of the best parts of my job is working alongside our operators and engineers to find ways to improve productivity and workflows.
My senior year of high school I struggled to figure out what I wanted my future to look like. I knew that I did not want to acquire thousands of dollars of student loan debt. At Jefferson, I explored my options, and I graduated from the Applied Process Technologies (APT) program.
Shift Leader, Dow Carrollton Finishing Department
As a shift leader, I supervise the production process in the Finishing area. Until recently, I was a Process Control Operator/Equipment Care Operator and responsible for routine tasks such as sampling, filter changes, bed changes, and lockout/tag outs.
I always knew I wanted to work in the chemical industry. The opportunity to start work while taking classes and get paid for it were too good to pass up. JCTC-Carrollton’s programs are a great first step for future education.
