Middlesex High School, St. Clare Walker Middle School and Middlesex Elementary School have received $500 grants from the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program to support the schools math remediation programs.
Thrift Oil Company worked with school officials to secure the grants, which are three of 4,000 available to schools across the country served by Exxon or Mobil stations. The grants were made possible by funding from the ExxonMobil Corporation.
“The Middlesex County School System works hard to make learning interesting and fun,” said Thrift Oil Company president Chappy Wake. “On behalf of Thrift Oil Company, Urbanna Exxon and the four Exxon-branded 7-11 Stores in Middlesex County, we are proud to help young people in Middlesex County.”
The ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program is designed to provide Exxon and Mobil retailers with an opportunity to invest in the future of their communities through educational grants to neighborhood schools. ExxonMobil believes that, as members of the community, local retailers are best qualified to work with local educators to help identify schools and programs most in need of support.
Thrift Oil Company, Urbanna Exxon and 7-11 met stringent eligibility criteria before being awarded these grants, including having a commitment to provide a superior buying experience for customers.
