WMC AWARDED EXXON GRANT

Earlier this month WMC had the pleasure of receiving a $500.00 ExxonMobil Educational Alliance Grant.  This gift will be used in our science and math department as suggested by the ExxonMobil Foundation.  We are grateful to our friends at Lakes Exxon (J & H Family Stores) at 1196 E. Sternberg Rd. in Norton Shores for nominating our school and for their efforts in securing this grant on our behalf.

We will use monies from the grant to purchase an Elmo Projector to continue to be a school of excellence as we challenge and raise up this next generation of Kingdom Warriors.

Our students sent cards and notes thanking them for this wonderful Christmas gift.  Merry Christmas, Lakes Exxon!
