Robeson Elementary School has received a $500 grant from the Exxon Mo-bil Educational Alliance. Mark DeLong, of Delong's Exxon, Morgantown, work-ed with school officials to secure the grant, which is one of 4,000 available to schools across the country served by Exxon or Mobil stations. The grants were made possible by funding from the Exxon Mobil Cor-poration.

"Robeson Elementary works hard to make learning interesting and fun," said DeLong. "As an Exx-on retailer, I am proud to help some of the young people in our community."

The Exxon/Mobil Edu-cational 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. Exxon/Mobil 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.

DeLong's Exxon met stringent eligibility criteria before applying for and being awarded this grant, including having a commitment to provide a superior buying experience for customers.

DeLong presented the check for $500 to Bill McKay, principal of Robeson Elementary School. De-Long's Exxon is located at 6350 Morgantown Road, Morgantown.
