A fifth grade class from Singing River Academy demonstrated for Pascagoula Chevron Refinery representatives new technology their teacher was able to purchase through Chevron's Fuel Your School program.
Chevron Refinery General Manager Bruce Chinn watched Charlene Hooks' fifth grade students use Boogie Boards, or LCD writing pads that erase electronically. A $1,079 grant provided 24 Boogie Boards for Hooks' classroom.
The Fuel Your School program has already given out $10,000 to classrooms in Jackson County and will grant another $40,000 through the end of the month.
