Lord Baltimore and Phillip C. Showell elementary schools each received $500 grants from the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance for the purchase of classroom supplies for math and science.

The grants were sponsored by Cato Gas & Oil and local Goose Creek Food Stores. Officials visited the schools Jan. 30 to present checks to the school principals.

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.
