Over the last two days, CEO had the opportunity to peek behind the curtain of the Wood River Refinery!

Ryan Frank (Project Engineer – Demolition & Tanks) joined class as a guest speaker to explain the business, science and community outreach initiatives of P66. We then joined the Riverbend CEO Program for a joint tour of the refinery and had the opportunity to hear from Jeff Leininger (Operations Manager).

Jeff’s discussions with students made one thing clear…𝒏𝒐 𝒎𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒆𝒓 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒊𝒏𝒅𝒖𝒔𝒕𝒓𝒚, 𝒉𝒂𝒗𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒂𝒏 𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒓𝒆𝒑𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒆𝒖𝒓𝒊𝒂𝒍 𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒅𝒔𝒆𝒕 𝒊𝒔 𝑲𝑬𝒀 𝒕𝒐 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒖𝒂𝒍 𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒏𝒊𝒏𝒈, 𝒊𝒎𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒗𝒆𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒈𝒓𝒐𝒘𝒕𝒉.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Ryan, Jeff, Katie Bennett (Community Affairs Coordinator) and the Wood River Refinery for welcoming us as guests and for your donation of time, energy and resources to our CEO programs.
