For the 19th consecutive year, Handy Mart and H.N. Funkhouser & Co. have presented each of Frederick County’s 20 public schools with a $500 grant to support math and science programs. The grants, which total $10,000, are the result of a partnership between H.N. Funkhouser & Company and the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance.

Schools Superintendent David Sovine says, “For nearly two decades, H.N. Funkhouser & Co. has worked with the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance to secure grants to help our schools provide students with unique opportunities to engage in math and science. We greatly value and appreciate the continued support we receive from all of our community partners, particularly H.N. Funkhouser & Co. These partnerships exemplify the positive impact businesses, organizations and individuals can have when they partner with our schools to support our students and invest their time, talent and treasure in our community’s future.”

Since 2001-02 when H.N. Funkhouser & Co. began working to secure grants through the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance to benefit Frederick County Public Schools, contributions totaling $173,250 have been made to support math and science instruction.

H.N. Funkhouser & Co. Vice President Rieman Claytor Royston says, “Presenting the grant checks to the principals of each school has become a tradition each year and one that my family is pleased to continue with support from the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance. We are proud to support and invest in our community’s children as they represent the future.”
