ROXANA — Five local high school graduates will receive a $16,000 college scholarship from the Phillips 66 Dependent Scholarship Program.
The competitive program awards outstanding college-bound students whose parents work for Phillips 66 or one of its subsidiaries. The awards are based on academic excellence, community service and financial need.
The company announced Darby Jones, Elizabeth Medlin, Brett Norvell, Mikayah Steelman and Bo Watson as honorees this year. Jones, stepdaughter of Phillips 66 employee Nick Davenport, graduated from Southwestern High School. Medlin, daughter of Phillips 66 employee Everett Medlin, graduated from Mater Dei Catholic High School. Norvell, son of Phillips 66 employee Scott Norvell, graduated from Civic Memorial High School. Steelman, daughter of Phillips 66 employee Daman Steelman, graduated from Staunton High School. Watson, stepson of Phillips 66 employee Chad LeMarr, graduated from Southwestern High School.
“This scholarship program reflects Phillips 66’s commitment to the communities where we live and operate and builds on our corporate vision of improving lives,” said Melissa Erker, Wood River Refinery spokesperson. “We congratulate Darby, Elizabeth, Brett, Mikayah, and Bo on their achievements inside and outside the classroom and wish them every success in college.”
The scholarship program will annually award as many as 66 four-year scholarships of $16,000 each for higher education at any accredited institution. Scholarship Management Services, a neutral, third-party administrator of educational assistance programs, selects the recipients and manages the program for Phillips 66.
