Phillips 66 CEO Gives $1.7M STEM Grant to Firm’s Local Schools

The CEO of Phillips 66 announced Tuesday that the company will be giving $1.7 million to Bartlesville Public Schools to create new innovative laboratories on three school campuses to support science, technology, engineering and math classes and research projects.

Greg Garland, Phillips 66 chairman and chief executive officer, made the initial announcement about the gift at a Bartlesville Regional Chamber of Commerce forum over the noon hour followed by a press conference in which he was joined by state and school officials. Garland noted the gift is among the top the company has ever bestowed on any school district.

“We want to create a place where our students will come and be excited, be challenged and hopefully be encouraged to follow a career at a place like Phillips 66,” he said. “We want to put the right kind of tools in the hands of students in Bartlesville so they can be more successful.”
