The University High School Technology Student Association (TSA) recently received a $500 grant from the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance to enhance Math and Science.  Brian Knowlton, Sales Manager of Whitley Fuel and Arun Lamichhane, owner of A SuperStore 24, 13415 E. 32nd Ave., met at UHigh March 3 to present the check to Advisor Dan Obenchain and representative TSA students. The Technology Student Association enhances personal development, leadership, and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), whereby members apply and integrate these concepts through intracurricular activities, competitions, and related programs.

ExxonMobil’s Educational Alliance Program has awarded $1.8 million in grants this year to schools to help enhance Math and Science education across the United States.  This is the 13th consecutive year for the program.  Whitley Fuel supported 7 schools throughout the Inland Empire. University High School’s TSA chapter would like to thank Whitley Fuel and A SuperStore ExxonMobil service station for this generous grant.
