ExxonMobil’s Educational Alliance Program has awarded $1.8 million in grants this year to schools to help enhance math and science education across the United States. This is the 12th consecutive year for the program.
AC&T supported 13 schools in the Tri-State area with $6,500 from educational alliance funds.
Schools could partner with Exxon- and Mobil-branded service stations, the majority of which are independently owned and operated, to apply for grants.
In September, AC&T began working with schools in the community to fill out the applications. In turn, each school determined how the funds could best be used to advance its math and science programs.
Checks for $500 were distributed to the following schools:
Greenbrier Elementary, Lincolnshire Elementary, Emma K. Doub Elementary, Smithsburg Elementary, Boonsboro Elementary, Winter Street Elementary, Greencastle Elementary, Tuscarora Elementary, Williamsport Elementary, Hancock Elementary, St. Francis Xavier School, Hooverville Elementary and Clear Spring Elementary.
For the last 12 years, grants from ExxonMobil and AC&T have benefited local students with total contributions exceeding $50,000.
