GOVERNOR MARK WHITE
APPOINTS BILL WOO
TO HELP ADMINISTER
by June Dove Leong
$6.3 million has been entrusted to Bill Woo, Chairman
of the Board of the Asian American National Bank, and a
select team of prominent business leaders, to aid the
State of Texas employment problem and to guide job seek-
ers to economic self-sufficiency.
Known as the Private Industry Council of the Job
Training Partnership Act (J.T.P.A.), Bill Woo, the only
Asian, heads the Citizens Committee together with Presi-
dent of Exxon (U.S.A.) Randall Meyer, President of Brown
& Root, Thomas J. Feehan; Chairman of Foley's Department
Store, Lasker Meyer; and General Superintendent of the
Houston Independent School District, Billy Reagan.
Appointed by Governor of Texas, Mark White, these
Houston leaders are responsible for $6.3 million of a
total $125 million earmarked to the State of Texas
by the Federal Government for distribution in the city
"For those unemployed, who find their job skills are
unmarketable," says Bill Woo, "these people will be
retrained to meet the needs of job openings available in
the City of Houston." In the instance of Vietnamese,
where language barriers prevent gainfull employment,
classes in English will be provided. Tentative plans
include classes for those interested in learning cooking
skills to staff kitchens in local restaurants. Youth
will also be given special consideration, for if it is
found that they have no job skills, this opportunity
will be offered to them as well.
The proposals of one member of the private industry
council is subject to the concordance of all of its
members working in harmonious relationship in the help-
ful guidance of Governor Mark White of the State of
Texas and Mayor Kathy Whitmire of the City of Houston.
