Cornerstone Chemical Plant Tour
On March 21, 2018 fourteen Shaw students joined a group from Academy of Our Lady to visit and learn more about the Cornerstone Chemical Plant in Waggaman. The plant covers 800 acres, employs 480 people, and ships approximately 2.5 billion pounds of product annually.
Students selected one of ten plant workers to shadow on a tour around the grounds. The disciplines of the tour guides included chemical, enectrical, and mechanical engineering, process technology, welding, and instrumentation.
Thank you to Shaw alum Stephen Bull for helping organize this tour. We hope to be back again next year with a new group of students!
