ExxonMobil has a long partnership with Lamar University,” said David Gorsich, an LU alumnus who manages ExxonMobil’s safety, security, health, environmental and emergency response. “We employ numerous alumni and we totally believe in the education that Lamar offers and present this check from our foundation and are looking forward to more to come.”

Other Lamar University alumni and ExxonMobil Beaumont Refinery employees joined Gorsich to deliver the check including: Nakisha Burns, public and government affairs manager; Aimee Lieby, product integrity advisor; and Joshua Bonura, catalyst senior technical engineer, to present the check to Ken Evans, president of Lamar University.

“I want to thank everyone who was active in making this number possible. I want to thank all of the alumni, those who are here and those who are not, for all they’ve done for Lamar University,” said Evans. “They are obviously great representatives of ExxonMobil and we thank you all for your generosity and for your continued partnership.”
