On September 10, 2015, Kurt Greenhouse, Field Foreman of XTO Energy,
presented Dr. Joe Shannon, Vice President of Instruction, and Whitney
Edens, Director of Workforce and Continuing Education with a $5,000 check
for the Panola College Foundation. The $5,000 will be used to award
scholarships to students studying Petroleum Technology at Panola College.
“Panola College Foundation sincerely appreciates the support and financial
contributions from XTO Energy towards our Petroleum Technology students and
program. We created the Petroleum Technology program to address the energy
industry’s need for trained employees in and around east Texas,” said Dr.
Joe Shannon. “This generous donation demonstrates XTO Energy’s commitment
not only to our program, but also to our community.”
