Entergy supervisors give recruiting pitch to technology students

Representatives from Entergy’s Sabine Power Plant in Bridge City were looking for a few good men and women during visit to campus this week.

Charles Eaves and James Landry, the production superintendent and control operations supervisor, respectively, at the natural gas-fueled power station on the east end of the Rainbow Bridge, invited Instrumentation Technology and Process Technology students at Lamar State College-Port Arthur to apply for full-time employment and part-time internships currently available at their plant.

In March 2015, the Lamar Softball program will get something it has nev­er had before – a brand new on-campus softball facility to call home.

The team, which returned in 2013 after a 25-year absence, has played all of its home games at Ford Fields, lo­cated six miles away on the outskirts of Beaumont.

Head coach Holly Bruder has been campaigning for years to get approval for a facility that was more convenient.
