SCHS receives ExxonMobil grant

Shawano Community High School is this year’s recipient of a $500 science and technology grant from the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program through local fuel retailer Auto Prep Center, 220 N. Main St., Shawano.

Only Exxon retailers that maintain favorable rankings in their store operations are eligible to apply for the grant. During the past 14 years, Auto Prep has been able to award nearly $7,000 in grants to local schools.

“Our schools work hard to make learning interesting and fun,” said Pat Trinko of Auto Prep. “We are proud to be a part of this program and to assist in that pursuit.”

The ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program was designed to provide Exxon retailers with an opportunity to invest in the future of their communities through educational grants to neighborhood schools. Local retailers like Auto Prep are allowed to work directly with educators to identify schools and programs most in need of support.
