Exxon Mobil Grants

The staff at Parker Oil Company have worked with Greensville County Schools for a number of years to secure grant funds for local schools from the Exxon Mobil Education Alliance Program.

On January 9th, funds for 2014 were granted to Greensville Elementary School, Belfield Elementary School, E.W. Wyatt Middle School, and Greensville County High School. Grants of $500 were awarded to Greensville Elementary and Belfield Elementary Schools. One thousand dollar awards were presented to Wyatt Middle School and Greensville County High School. These funds are to be used for educational projects that support the schools’ ongoing efforts to provide high quality instructional services in Mathematics and/or Science.

Thanks to friends of education at Parker Oil Company, this marks the 9th year schools have received the Exxon Mobil Grant funds. The grants were created to allow local oil companies, like Parker Oil, to invest in the future of their communities through the schools.  

School officials express appreciation to Ed Low and the Parker Oil Company for demonstrating their commitment to public education through their diligence in working to acquire these grant funds for the schools each year.
