IRVING, Texas -- Exxon Mobil Corp. and PGA Tour star Phil Mickelson announced a new partnership that will include participation in select ExxonMobil corporate communications activities. Mickelson and his wife Amy will work with ExxonMobil to develop new and innovative programs to improve science and math education in elementary schools.
"Our partnership with the Mickelsons furthers ExxonMobil's long tradition of seeking to improve student achievement in science, mathematics and technology," said Lee Raymond, ExxonMobil's chairman and CEO.
Mickelson and ExxonMobil will work together to launch innovative programs to help elementary school teachers improve their instruction in math and science and thereby increase student interest and achievement in these disciplines. The programs will offer advanced training in science and mathematics instruction for elementary school teachers chosen from the communities around the country where Mickelson will be playing tournaments.
"I'm excited to announce that my wife Amy and I will be working with ExxonMobil on programs to promote elementary school science and mathematics education," Mickelson said. "As parents, we recognize the importance of strong, innovative teachers and diverse technological curricula in our elementary schools. Supporting education in the many communities I have the privilege of visiting on the PGA Tour will give us great personal satisfaction."
