For the second year in a row, the Midland West Rotary Club is hosting its “Shoot for the Future” clay shoot on March 11 at Windwalker Farms in Stanton.  Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit scholarships for MC Applied Technology students.  Event organizer is Tom Jones, Midland West Rotary Club vice president.  For information about the shoot, contact Jones, (432) 553-5456 or visit the calendar page on the Midland College website

Students benefitting from the scholarships include those enrolled in hands-on programs ranging from Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Technology, Automotive Technology, Collision Repair, Diesel Technology, Energy Technology and Welding.  

“Students in these programs have a sense of calling,” Curt Pervier, MC dean of Applied Technology said.  “They truly enjoy working hands-on.  They not only become proficient in a skill that enables them to provide for themselves and their families, but also they build self-confidence and leadership skills by using their unique gifts and talents.”

Jaime Moran is one of those students.  He enrolled in the Midland College (MC) Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Technology program in fall 2020.  By July 2021, he had obtained enough training to get an entry-level technician job at The Bosworth Company.  Now, as he serves Midland residents by helping to keep them warm in the winter and cool in the summer, he is also continuing to take evening classes at Midland College toward an HVAC certificate.

“The Midland West Rotary Club recognizes that students in the Applied Technology fields are often overlooked,” Jones explained.  Yet these students are vital to the Permian Basin economy.”
