BP Amoco donates nearly $10k to Phillip Simmons High School
In Septemeber 2017, BP Amoco officially partnered with Philip Simmons High School through the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce. After visiting the school and various CTE classrooms, they worked closely with teachers and administration to determine specific needs and areas where they could provide the utmost support, and help make a difference in the students' education.
On January 12, 2018, BP Amoco made an $8,000 donation to the Computer Science, Networking/Engineering classes, and a $1,500 donation to fund the first-ever robotics team.
Because of their generous donations, some of our CTE programs at Philip Simmons High School will be able to purchase pieces of technology that will allow teachers to utilize the classroom to provide real-life experiences for our students and better prepare them for the workforce.
