Midland Scouts Perform Flag Ceremony; Meet Governor Perry
Do a flag ceremony? Meet the governor? Sure!
Last Friday, August 26th, Troop 175 had the honor of presenting the colors for the flag ceremony of a ground breaking of one of Occidental’s newest buildings in Midland. They were also able to meet Texas Governor, former House Speaker Tom Craddick, Representative Tyron Lewis, Midland Mayor Jerry Morales and Occidental President and CEO Steve Chazen.
The Troop was in flawless class A uniform for the event. Tommy Beebe lead the charge for the Scouts.
Occidental (aka OXY), an operator and producer of crude, is the largest employer in the Permian Basin with more than 12,000 employees. The 600-employee office complex in Midland, will serve as the center of the company’s oil-and-gas operations in the Permian Basin in West Texas. The Houston-based company’s new office should be completed in late 2015.
