A $500 grant was secured for the DeForest Area High School science program by Redline Mobil, in partnership with the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program.

Teuta Resad, co-owner of the DeForest Redline Mobil, nominated the high school’s science program for this year’s grant.

She states: “Involving high school students in research has been shown to be beneficial for the student. These programs not only contribute to student understanding and confidence in scientific material, but also foster an interest in pursuing careers in science in both the short and long term. Both of our children attended DeForest Area High School and thanks to the District’s science curriculum, they continued their studies in the sciences for their undergrad, masters and medical school. We are very grateful for our community and support our students and teachers who work tirelessly in their classrooms, schools, and districts and are happy that we could secure this grant for the school. We are certain they’ll put it into good use.”

Last year the program awarded a grant of $500 to the DeForest Area High School Girls Basketball Team.
