Marathon Petroleum

Our Adopt A School

Marathon Petroleum has been an exciting attribute to Barber Middle School. They have been very enthusiastic about not only adopting our campus, but participating hands on with the students and the CIS program. Within a week of adopting BMS, Marathon made a generous donation to our school library. They also came to the Communities in School’s lunch bunch and did an amazing school diversity activity with our students entitled “Insiders and Outsiders”. From there Marathon participated in one of our campus’ largest events, Thanksgiving Lunch. The students invited their family members to come to BMS and have a special Thanksgiving Lunch with them, and 4 representatives from Marathon came out and served 600 lunches.

Recently, Marathon participated in our annual career day. They had a host of information and visuals for our 682 students to enjoy and they were very enlightening in providing information about the petroleum oil industry.  We are very thankful to have a “hands on” partner to help us educate and enrich the students of Barber Middle School.
