26 students accepted into Brazosport College’s Catalyst program

Wed Sep 8, 2021

Twenty-six local high school students were recently accepted into Brazosport College’s Catalyst program, which is a collaborative effort between Brazosport College and four local school districts — Angleton ISD, Brazosport ISD, Columbia-Brazoria ISD and Sweeny ISD.

The program guides high school students toward high-skill, high-wage jobs in high-demand fields, while helping fill some of the local demand for skilled workers, such as process operators and instrumentation technicians.

The Catalyst program allows students to take a structured path toward the completion of an associate degree in Process Operations or Instrumentation Technology within one year of high school graduation or a Bachelor of Applied Technology in Industrial Management within three years of high school graduation.

The names of the 26 students accepted into the program were officially announced during a recent orientation and signing event at The Clarion at Brazosport College. The new class has 16 students working toward a degree in Process Operations and 10 studying for Instrumentation Technology.

Students accepted into the Catalyst program are:

Angleton High School: Nicholas Etheridge, William Teague, Jesse Barber, Caleb Castle, Benjamin Garcia. Joziah Jauregui and Rigo Lozano.

Brazosport High School: Elim Castro, Miguel Lomeli and Andrew Madrigal.

Brazoswood High School: Rolando Gonzalez, Jason Morrison, Braxton Rollo, Kristopher Whitley and De’Anthony White.

Columbia High School: Carter Klesel, Mason Wallace, Caleb Garcia and Ashley Shugart.

Sweeny High School: Riley Jones, Gavin Nelson, Miguel Ramirez, Phillip Simmons, Garrett Virgel, Damian Ruiz and Cutter Schuerg.
