Trade Schools in Texas Pitch In to Help Corpus Christi

“We are a resilient little town and we’re slowly getting things back to normal around here.”
As Hurricane Harvey swept up the gulf coast, households hunkered down and trade schools in Texas, including SCI, closed their doors early.
They warned students to head home and stay safe for the wild, windy, and wet weekend ahead.

No one knew quite what to expect–a little rainfall at best and a Stage 4 hurricane at worst.

Well the worst is what they got and even as the storm moved north, Southern Careers Institute Corpus Christi, roughly 10 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, felt the ripple effects of the storm. Other trade schools in Texas that were closer to the gulf may have been hit harder, but miraculously, SCI Corpus Christi suffered minimal impact. Employees and staff worked through the weekend to prepare the school for classes to open on Tuesday, August 29th, 2017.

Immediately following the storm, Southern Careers Institute leapt into action. SCI has 7 trade schools in Texas, although the SCI Corpus Christi community was affected the most by Hurricane Harvey’s warpath.

#CaringforCorpus became the battle cry and hashtag across all the Southern Careers Institute campuses and students and staff members lined up to give what they could to those in need that they have never met.

In SCI San Antonio South, students lined up to pack a semi full of items to make the trip southeast to SCI Corpus. “We all came together as one family to take care of our own and the surrounding community” said Adrian De La Garza, Executive Director of Marketing for Southern Careers Institute, who made the trip down from the corporate headquarters in Austin. On Friday, 9/1 as early as 9:30AM, semi’s, pickups, and SUV’s pulled up to drop off cartons, bags, and boxes of water, non-perishable food, and supplies. SCI Corpus Christi students lined up in an assembly line to fill the student lounge and classrooms with items to be sorted and organized.The sense of community, positivity and resilience on campus that Friday was impossible not to feel. Dee, an evening medical assistant student, elbow-deep in bags of clothes, laughed as she re-arranged piles of men’s and women’s tops and bottoms after families moved through, searching for sizes and matching pairs of shoes. When asked about her home in the storm, she said she was “blessed. I lost electricity for only one day and lost my back fence, so I just extended my yard, and that was it!”

Of all the trade schools in Texas, SCI Corpus Christi is a special breed–they are truly life-changers. If you are looking to make an impact in your own life, consider what career training in a community that cares can do for you. Learn more by filling out this form below.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”

“I am very happy with where I am and where I’m going. Through high school, I struggled with math. When I came to SCI, I enrolled in the Business Accounting Specialist program to see if I could do it. SCI provided me with the accounting skills I needed to help me find a career. Now, I have an amazing career and room to grow in the company.”
