Meet Mr. Ramey

Workforce Challenge

Mr. Hubert Ramey had moved from Newton, Mississippi to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina.

When PDR moved to Louisiana, Mr. Ramey found himself unemployed and with limited marketable skills.

On July 9, 2009, Hubert applied for a WIA-funded Individual Training Account for the Process Operations program offered at the Jackson County campus of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. He was approved for funding, entered the program, and graduated in May, 2010 with a 4.0 GPA.

Outcomes & Benefits

Mr. Ramey is now working in a well-paid position in process operations with Chevron in Pascagoula.
