Cheder Lubavitch elementary school in Morristown, New Jersey, has received a $750 grant from the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Program to support the school’s Smart Board Technology that allows for a more interactive and multi media classroom.
Smart Boards are interactive whiteboards that allow teachers to give enhanced, dynamic classroom based instruction to their students.
Alex Norkin of Exxon on Morris St. worked with school officials to secure the grant, which is one of 2,400 available to schools across the country served by Exxon or Mobil stations.
The grants were made possible by funding from the ExxonMobil Corporation.
“Cheder Lubavitch works hard to make learning interesting and fun,” said Alex Norkin. “As an Exxon retailer, I am proud to help young people of Morristown.”
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.
ExxonMobil believes that, as members of the community, local retailers are best qualified to work with local educators to help identify schools and programs most in need of support.
Norkin met stringent eligibility criteria before applying for and being awarded this grant, including having a commitment to provide a superior buying experience for customers.
