In 1968, Strickland sought to share his inspiration with neighborhood youth by founding the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild (MCG), an afterschool arts program for at-risk kids.

Strickland transformed Bidwell’s traditional job training programs by developing innovative partnerships with local corporations. Strickland’s vision for the synergies between two disparate programs, the entrepreneurial relationships he forged with the business community, and the first-class facilities he brought to an economically disadvantaged neighborhood were hailed as national models, and he was acclaimed as a new breed of “social entrepreneur,” receiving a MacArthur “genius award” in 1996.

The refinery would bring economic prosperity by creating 1,600-2,000 jobs during construction and 400-500 permanent jobs in an area of high unemployment.
