Grant Award

It’s a special day when you’re presented a check for $1,000 checkfor math and science education materials!  Thanks to the forethought of the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program, Mr. Walid Alameddine, VP and COO of Victron Energy, presented us with a check today to purchase math and science resource materials to further expand and enhance our math and science learning opportunities. The Alliance is designed to provide all ExxonMobil retailers an opportunity to invest into the future of their communities through educational grants to neighborhood schools. Stringent requirements and special criteria must be met before grant awards are distributed; Mr. Alameddine ensures he secures grants for our area on an annual basis.

As always, we are so excited to put these funds to great use in our math and science classes.  STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Math) education is an essential component in 21 Century learning.  This continued support from our community partners is most appreciated.  As one young learner noted today once the announcement was made, “Yeah, Mrs. Van, everyone knows that math and science ROCK!”  Thanks and “rock on,” Mr. Alameddine, Victron Energy, and the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program.
