Towle School Receives ExxonMobil Grant


NEWPORT – Newport’s Towle School, host of Grades 5 and 6 was recently awarded a $500 ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Grant to be used in the disciplines of math or science.


Presented by Towle student, Darren Carroll to school Principal, Phil Callanan, the award is under review for an appropriate project, but may be slated toward the costs of a “minnow tank” for trout that will be released into area waterways in collaboration with New Hampshire fisheries through a project under construction and direction of elementary teacher, Teriko MacConnell.


Towle School was nominated by “Newport Neighbors” Mobil on the John Stark Highway of Newport which is managed by Rosie Wein. The funds were distributed by Alicia Russell, Brand Management Coordinator of Summit Distributing of Lebanon, NH. Summit is the ExxonMobil distributor serving sixty ExxonMobil stations nominating schools in New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts.


ExxonMobil distributes approximately $2 million dollars in $500 grants annually to community schools near ExxonMobil affiliates.


“We are really excited and honored to receive this grant,” said Callanan. “We will certainly put the funds into a project that all students can enjoy and learn from.”
