PF&E Oil Company dba Food Plaza and ExxonMobil donated $1,000 to the Early Independent School District through the ExxonMobil Education Alliance program. Early Elementary and Early High School will use the monies to help increase learning in math and science.

Steve Fryar, President of PF&E Oil Company dba Food Plaza, said, “The ExxonMobil Educational Alliance donated over $2 million to school districts across America. We are very proud that we were able to secure some of that money for the Early Independent School District.”

Mrs. Jennifer Kent, Early High School Principal and Mr. Randy Lancaster, Early Middle School Principal said, “We are very appreciative to have Food Plaza working closely with our schools. This money will go a long way in helping us to acquire additional math and science materials for our students. It is getting harder each year to get the necessary funding to continue the quality education that our school districts need and is accustomed to giving out children.”

This is the tenth year Food Plaza has been able to acquire funding through the ExxonMobil grant program to help our local schools. “This money will help further the education of our children by allowing our schools to further their science and math programs, and additional computer software.” Fryar said.

Food Plaza had to meet stringent eligibility criteria before applying and being awarded this grant including having a commitment to provide superior customer service. Food Plaza is an Adopt-A-School sponsor and has worked closely with the Early ISD for several years. PF&E Oil Company dba Food Plaza owns and operates four bulk fuel and oil facilities located in Brownwood, Cisco, Comanche and Cross Plains along with eight Food Plaza convenience stores in Bangs, Brownwood, Comanche, Cross Plains, Early and Stephenville.
