Voke School Receives Donation
Superintendent David DiBarri and Principal Carla Scuzzarella are pleased to share that Northeast Metro Tech has received a $500 donation from ExxonMobil and Global Partners LP.
The donation will support Northeast Metro Tech’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) program, and was received by the district yesterday.
“This is such a kind gesture to support our STEM programming and we really appreciate our local ExxonMobil station for this donation,” Principal Scuzzarella said. “This funding will directly benefit students in our STEM program by supporting the robust, hands-on education we provide to help create skilled future employees in these high demand careers.”
Global Partners LP has awarded grants to schools throughout New England, New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland for the past decade in partnership with ExxonMobil’s Educational Alliance Program. The initiative awarded $182,500 to 365 schools in 2020 in an effort to support STEM education.
“It really comes down to our local Territory Managers (TM’s) working closely with their local Exxon- and Mobil-branded station owners to choose the schools they feel would benefit the most from these innovative grants,” said Louis Parison, Global’s Brand Porgrams Manager. “A lot of our grants each year go to the same schools which helps them to truly develop a consistent STEM program. And our TM’s are vested in their local communities, and the local Exxon- and Mobil-branded stations in town also want to support these educational efforts.”
