Chevron Teaching Workshops!

"Continuing Our Academic Success"

As Vermilion Parish began rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Rita, Chevron Awarded money to help in the crusade of rebuilding the schools along the Gulf Coast.  Several Chevron employees presented Vermilion Parish Schools with a $1.34 million check as the first phase of the Energy for Learning Grant. (Shown in picture two above from left to right are: Melody Meyer - VP, Gulf of Mexico Business Unit, Acting Superintendent Phil Sellers, Mike Burnside - Americas Regional Manager, Chevron Oronite Company, Chanel Jolly - Energy for Learning Program Director). In the next phase, teachers were trained with new science technologies and resources made available through the Chevron Grant.  In the fall of 2007, the implementation of the new equipment began in Vermilion Parish Classrooms!  Since then, Vermilion Parish has continued its efforts by offering professional development annually to keep teachers and students up-to-date on activities using these resources.

Thank You Chevron!
