ExxonMobil sponsors school papers

PETALING JAYA: ExxonMobil has committed itself to sponsor, for a third year, 40,000 copies of The Star, which will benefit 54 schools . 

ExxonMobil Production Projects general manager Hareesh Pillai said he was pleased that The Star’s Newspaper in Education (NiE) pullout had expanded to include Science and Mathematics as it made “a good fit with our objective of promoting interest in science and technology among young people.”
