Step Up to Success

Pantexans are dedicated to encouraging the next generation of technical professionals, skilled trade workers and first responders.

Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC was a sponsor for the recent Step Up to Success conference for area high school students. Students attended two sessions of their choice with professionals from career fields such as healthcare, business, engineering, agriculture science, criminal justice, law, communications, information technology, culinary arts and skilled trades.

Engineers, sheet metal workers and firefighter paramedics from Pantex Plant shared the education and skill requirements for their jobs.

Los Barrios de Amarillo, a civic organization established by Hispanic community leaders, hosted the bi-annual event for more than 700 high school students in the Texas Panhandle. Los Barrios also offers a middle school conference in the spring.
