ROXANA — Four high school seniors 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 Cameron Foust, Chase Langendorf, Shane Nichols and Chase Zezoff as honorees this year. Foust, son of Phillips 66 employee Craig Foust, is a graduate of East Alton-Wood River Community High School. Langendorf, son of Phillips 66 employee Daniel Langendorf, is a graduate of Metro-East Lutheran High School. Nichols, son of Phillips 66 employee John Nichols, is a graduate of Marquette Catholic High School. Zezoff, stepson of Phillips 66 employee Mike Oseland, is a graduate of Granite City 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, director of government and community affairs at the Wood River Refinery. “We congratulate these four students 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 third-party administrator of educational assistance programs, selects the recipients and manages the program for Phillips 66.
