Sunoco Logistics Demonstrates Its Deep Roots in Delaware, Chester Counties with Educational Grant


Delaware County Community College is the recipient of a $100,000 grant from Newtown Square-based Sunoco Logistics that will help fund the training and education of local students for careers in process control technology.

This investment in the college’s process control technology program empowers students with the skills and knowledge to seek employment in automated manufacturing and production facilities. In turn, graduates meet the needs of local industries in natural gas, oil distribution, food processing, and pharmaceutical manufacturing.

“Sunoco Logistics has deep roots in Delaware and Chester counties, and we are committed to investing in the communities where we operate,” said Joseph McGinn Jr., senior government affairs manager for Sunoco Logistics. “We work with Delaware County Community College to provide excellent training for the next generation of innovators and give students the tools they need to fulfill high-demand jobs in our region.”

A portion of the grant will fund scholarships and support students in process control training programs, which can quickly lead to jobs that provide family-sustaining wages. Students can complete the Process Control Certificate Program in less than one year and transition seamlessly into a career.

“Delaware County Community College is pleased with its continued partnership with Sunoco Logistics to move education and work opportunities forward for our students and for the region,” said college president Dr. Jerry Parker. “Our education and training resources in advanced manufacturing play a key role in preparing residents in Delaware and Chester counties to compete in a 21st-century workforce.”
