Waxahachie High School, Waxahachie Ninth Grade Academy and Finley Seventh Grade Center recently received a $500 grant each from the Exxon Mobil Educational Alliance program to support the school’s math and science programs.
Walid Alameddine, vice president of local business Victron Energy, worked with Exxon Mobil and school officials to secure the grant, which is made available to schools across the country served by Exxon or Mobil stations. The grants were made possible by funding from the Exxon Mobil Corporation.
Victron Energy was required to meet stringent eligibility criteria before applying for and being awarded this grant, including having a commitment to provide a superior buying experience for customers.
“We are thrilled to receive this grant,” said David Nix, WHS principal. “We are privileged to have individuals such as Mr. Alameddine and businesses such as Victron Energy and Exxon Mobil who believe in Waxahachie ISD and our mission to educate all children.”
The Exxon Mobil 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 neighbor hood schools.
Exxon Mobil 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.
