Eric Phillips said being laid off from his job in the oilfields in the spring of 2020 at the start of the COVID pandemic was probably the best thing that could have happened to him.
“I graduated from Stanton High School in 2007 and went straight into the Marine Corps,” Phillips explained. “When I was in the Marines, I worked in supply and logistics for four years at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. When I was discharged from the Marines in 2012, I came back out west from Texas and got a job in the oil and gas industry, where I was employed for eight years – first for Key Energy, then for Great Plains Drilling.
