Lufkin Company Gives Back To Community

Eight East Texas schools are now better prepared to help their students succeed, thanks to a local oil company.

Polk Oil company Wednesday awarded $12,000 to the Lufkin, Central, Diboll, and Corrigan ISD's. Zavalla, Huntington, Hudson, and Central Heights school districts were also part of the grant.

This is the fifth year Polk Oil has applied for funds through the Exxon/Mobil Education Alliance Program. The schools will use the money for various projects including field trips, teaching aides, and rewards for students.
