CHARLESTON, MS - Sayle Oil Company, an ExxonMobil fuel distributor in Mississippi, in partnership with the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program, announced today it has awarded 10 grants to K-12 schools in Central and North Mississippi as part of its commitment to support and strengthen local communities.
"We have a long history of supporting local neighborhood schools and consider it a privilege to invest our time and resources in the communities where we do business," said Ashley Havens, Brand Manager for Sayle Oil Company. "It's extremely satisfying that, through the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program, we were able to donate $5,000 to support quality education programs, the foundation for individual opportunity and economic prosperity."
2018 recipients included: North Delta School, South Panola High School, Charleston High School, Pope Elementary School, Kirk Academy, Richland High School, Hattiesburg High School, Senatobia Middle School, Charleston Middle School, and Batesville Jr. High. Each school received $500 each.
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.
Local schools are eligible to apply for Educational Alliance grants by partnering with their nearby Exxon or Mobil station, which are all independently owned and operated by authorized independent Branded Wholesalers. Every year, ExxonMobil awards 4,400 Educational Alliance grants to K-12 institutions across the country.
ExxonMobil is a long-standing supporter of education programs around the world, particularly in the fields of math and science, which are critical to success and innovation. Since its inception in 2000, ExxonMobil has committed over $34 million to the Educational Alliance, helping provide students with the tools and technology they need to connect what they learn in the classroom with what they see in the real world.
