Dexter Regional High School has received a $500 grant from the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program to support the school's Outdoor Education program. Ben Hamblen, the Manager of the A.E. Robinson Oil Company of Dexter worked with school officials to secure the grant which is one of 4,000 available to schools across the country served by Exxon or Mobil stations. The grants were made possible by funding from the Exxon Mobil Corporation.
"Dexter Regional High School works hard to make learning interesting and fun", said Mr. Hamblen. "As a Mobil retailer, I am proud to help the young people of Dexter and the surrounding community."
The ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program is designed to provide Exxon and Mobil retailers with an opportunity to invest in the future of their communities through educational grants to neighborhood schools. ExxonMobil believes that, as members of the community, local retailers are best qualified to work with local educators to help identify schools and programs most in need of support.
A.E. Robinsons Company met stringent eligibility criteria before applying for and being awarded this grant, including having a commitment to provide a superior buying experience for customers.
