For the third year in a row, representatives of Romeoville Mobil at 135th Street and Illinois Route 53 have donated $500 to the math and science programs at Romeoville High School. The grant is made possible through the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program.
Although RHS officials haven’t determined exactly how this year’s donation will be used, last year’s donation helped purchase calculators for the math department and helped fund the school’s robotics program.
“Good education is a necessary tool for the future of our children,” said Mohammed V. Qurashi, Owner and President of Romeoville Mobil at 135th and Rt. 53. “We wanted to help the students in our community’s schools as they prepare for college.”
ExxonMobil’s Educational Alliance Program has awarded $2 million in grants in the past year alone. The program is designed to provide Exxon and Mobil dealers like Romeoville Mobil with an opportunity to invest in the future of their communities through grants to neighborhood schools.
“Our staff works very hard every day to serve the Romeoville community,” Qurashi said.
