MEDWAY – Superintendent Armand Pires and Principal John Murray are pleased to announce that Medway High School recently received a grant from ExxonMobil and Global Partners LP.
The grant, in the amount of $500, will be used to support Medway High School’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) program.
“On behalf of our STEM students and staff, I would like to thank Hiyam Jabour, owner of our local Global gas station, for nominating us for this grant,” said Principal Murray. “This funding will help us continue to provide our students with high-quality STEM learning experiences that put them on the path to success in the classroom and in their future endeavors.”
Global Partners LP has awarded grants to schools throughout New England, New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland for the past decade in partnership with ExxonMobil’s Educational Alliance Program. The initiative awarded $182,500 to 365 schools in 2020 in an effort to support STEM education.
“It really comes down to our local Territory Managers (TM’s) working closely with their local Exxon- and Mobil-branded station owners to choose the schools they feel would benefit the most from these innovative grants,” said Louis Parison, Global’s Brand Programs Manager. “A lot of our grants each year go to the same schools, which helps them to truly develop a consistent STEM program. And our TM’s are vested in their local communities, and the local Exxon- and Mobil-branded stations in town also want to support these educational efforts.”
