Timberland High School was recently awarded a $500 grant from Young’s Convenience Stores and the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program to support math and science education.
The Exxon Young’s located at 1487 Main Street in Bonneau worked closely with school officials to secure the grant, which is one of 2,500 available to schools across the country served by Exxon or Mobil stations.
“During times of budget cuts and limited outside funding, we are proud to be able to provide our local schools with this financial support,” said Jeff Turpin, CEO of the VPS Convenience Store Group.
The grant will provide supplemental learning tools such as science lab supplies, iPads, graphing calculators, or funding for math and science related field trips.
Happy March Birthday
