12/21/2002

Fifty students from Equatorial Guinea will be able to pursue their education at La Roche thanks to a grant from Marathon Oil. The company has pledged $300,000 in assistance over a four-year period to support the students, who are enrolled in the Pacem In Terris program at the College.

“We are delighted to help advance this unique collaboration between La Roche College and the young people of Equatorial Guinea,” said Steve Hinchman, senior vice president, production operations, Marathon Oil Company. “We understand that our reputation as a responsible corporate citizen is essential to our continued success. By being responsive to the needs and interests of our employees, neighbors and community stakeholders, Marathon is able to provide sustainable benefits to the communities where we operate.”

Monsignor William A. Kerr, president of La Roche College, expressed his appreciation for Marathon’s support. “We are extremely pleased to have Marathon Oil Company as a partner in our efforts to bring increased prosperity through education to the peoples of the developing regions of the world,” he said. “Marathon’s interest in addressing the educational needs of Equatorial Guinea reflects a sense of social responsibility and a corporate philosophy that is consistent with the underlying principles of our Pacem In Terris Institute.”
