He attended Southern Louisiana Institute (now ULL) in Lafayette and then went to work as a basic engineer for the US Coast and Geological Survey. His father worked many years and retired from a Texaco gas processing plant in Erath. Emmet went to work for Texaco in June of 1950 as a deckhand. Several months later, Mr. Sellers was roustabouting and also worked as a pumper. He later became a production supervisor for Texaco.
