MPC employee hosting a West Virginia Women Work class

On Sept. 20, MPC's Marine Transportation group hosted 16 women from a construction class through West Virginia Women Work.

The management team talked to the group about MPC, the marine industry and the opportunities MPC provides. The class also heard from MPC’s Andrea Cooke, mechanical integrity specialist, and toured the marine maintenance shops and the MV Kentucky boat.

West Virginia Women Work is a nonprofit organization that helps women enter and advance in jobs that will lead to economic self-sufficiency. The main goal of the program is to help women explore, train and secure employment in nontraditional occupations.
