Marathon Oil Funds SmartLab HQ at Texas City High School
This fall, Texas City High School, in Texas City, Texas, will have a brand new SmartLab HQ thanks to the generosity of Marathon Petroleum Co. and their support of local education.
The Marathon SmartLab complements the Blocker Middle School SmartLab HQ funded by Valero Energy Corporation in 2013. Together, they provide Texas City ISD students with an opportunity to explore hands-on, project-based STEM education throughout their secondary school career.
Texas City ISD provides a national model for corporate support of local K–12 education.
The Texas City ISD Foundation for the Future works closely with local business and community leaders to support schools. For their corporate partners, these STEM labs provide valuable publicity and help build a pipeline of future high school graduates with the skills to contribute to their organizations.
