HGTC Students Hired and Offered Internships by CRP Industries
Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) students are being hired or offered internships by a new company that opened a location in Conway right before the COVID-19 pandemic. Several Mechatronics and Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) graduates are being interviewed for positions and hired following graduation. Internships are also being offered for students currently enrolled in HGTC programs.
“We are very excited about this new company in our area and the new partnership benefitting our students. We are looking forward to working with CRP Industries and hearing from the industry perspective how the skillsets learned in the classroom are being applied in the workplace,” said Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore, HGTC President.
CRP Industries recently hired Kevin Ponce, a Mechatronics graduate from Georgetown, into a permanent position, and Ryan Focht, an EET student, into an internship position beginning in August.
Additional graduates have been interviewed as well, including an Advanced Welding Technology graduate.
Scott Shea, COO for CRP Industries said, “We are very excited to bring HGTC graduates and interns into our workforce. We have partnered with the HGTC faculty to communicate our specific needs to the College, and they in-turn have worked diligently to fulfill those needs. Our intentional partnership with HGTC was a key factor in locating our plant to Conway.”
