The Exxon Mobil Educational Alliance program encourages students to take an active interest in careers in the math and science fields. As part of their program, our local Exxon once again nominated Eiland Middle School as the recipient of a $500 grant. “Coach” Heard received the funds that were issued through the Waring Oil Company based in Vicksburg.
The funds will continue to be used to enhance Coach Heard’s Science program here at Eiland Middle School.
