ATLANTA (Oct. 6, 2014) –  Chevron Corporation announced on Sept. 30 that it would provide a $231,500 grant for scholarships and to support enrichment programs for Clark Atlanta University’s (CAU) business and engineering students.  This is the third award of more than $200,000 from Chevron since 2011.

Trisa Long Paschal, vice president for Institutional Advancement and University Relations, said, “We at CAU are grateful for our long-standing ties with Chevron and for its model corporate citizenship in supporting higher education and related strategic initiatives.  It is always our pleasure to welcome Chevron executives to campus to meet our talented students and continue strengthening exchange with these relationships that, in many ways, are as important as the company’s generous scholarship support.”

Joe Laymon, Chevron’s vice president of Human Resources, Medical and Security, and a member of CAU’s board of trustees, said, “Our ongoing relationship with CAU is important for a few reasons, especially for the pool of talented CAU students in engineering, supply chain management, marketing, security and other majors who will make great contributions in the corporate arena and in their own families and communities.  To support them in their matriculation is an investment that assures immeasurable return.” 

Selected CAU students, administrators and faculty who participated in the presentation, which took place during a Sept. 30 scholars’ luncheon, shared their appreciation.  Interim Dean Charles Moses of CAU’s School of Business Administration said, “As wonderful as our history is, we would not have much of a future without the assistance of our corporate partners, and Chevron has been one of the most generous.”
