"The partnership between Nebraska Public Power
District and the Energy Generation Operations program
at SCC helps provide our organization with a steady
pipeline of homegrown talent. It's a win-win situation.
On-site job shadowing opportunities at our generation
facilities help expose the students to the practical
application of what they're learning in their classes, and
NPPD benefits by establishing relationships early on
in the education process. Other employers are envious
of the quality of future employees that NPPD is getting
from this program."
