The WOCCISD Education Foundation awarded more than $24,000 in grants to teachers and campuses in the WOCCISD school system.
WOCCISD Education Foundation President Krispen Walker said, “On August 20, 2019, the WOCCISD Education Foundation was honored to present 10 grant awards totaling just over $24,000 to the worthy educators in our district. This year, our eighth time to present awards, we were able to fund every grant request that was submitted. Since 2011, the WOCCISD Education Foundation has awarded approximately $152,000 to educators across the district. We are grateful to Chevron Phillips for their donation of $5000, which will be used to fund STEM related grants.
The grant awards included eight individual classroom grants and two campus grants. Areas funded included not only STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields, but also Reading, History, Writing, Social Skills and more.
This is the second consecutive year for Chevron to participate.
“Chevron Phillips is excited to once again have the opportunity to partner with the Education Foundation on teacher grants focused on keeping students enthusiastic about STEM careers,” stated Craig Lemons, Plant Manager of Chevron Phillips, Orange.
