ExxonMobil gift benefits students from GCCISD, Barbers Hill

ExxonMobil donated $20,000 to Lee College and created two endowed scholarships focusing on local student excellence.

The ExxonMobil Advanced Technology Scholarships will be offered to select students graduating from Goose Creek CISD or Barbers Hill ISD who plan to pursue a petrochemical career through training at Lee College.

Baytown Chemical Plant Site Manager Wim Blokker said, “ExxonMobil is proud to establish these scholarships to aid in student success. We have the best in Baytown with Lee College and their premier energy education programs, and this scholarship funding will help us achieve our goal of helping petrochemical students fund their education. Our hope is that many will pursue a career at ExxonMobil Baytown.”
