Representatives from Entergy’s Sabine Power Plant in Bridge City were looking for a few good men and women during visit to campus this week.

Charles Eaves and James Landry, the production superintendent and control operations supervisor, respectively, at the natural gas-fueled power station on the east end of the Rainbow Bridge, invited Instrumentation Technology and Process Technology students at Lamar State College-Port Arthur to apply for full-time employment and part-time internships currently available at their plant.

The two men explained that many of the plant’s 65 full-time employees are nearing retirement age and that finding qualified applicants to replace them is difficult. Eaves urged students interested in working for the utility company to register online, so they can receive notice of job openings.

“We have partnerships with several local employers, one of which is Entergy,” said Dr. Ben Stafford, Dean of Technical Programs at LSC-PA. “It’s an example of those partnerships that they would come to us specifically to fill jobs.”

Lamar State College-Port Arthur offers one-year certificates and two-year Associate of Applied Science Degrees in either Process Technology or Instrumentation Technology. For more information, contact Admissions/Advising at 409-984-6186 or Financial Aid at 409-984-6203.
