ExxonMobil Interns Support Monarch  
Going Green

The Monarch School was honored to be selected as the recipient of the 2009 ExxonMobil Community Service Project. On June 25th more than 20 ExxonMobil summer interns were informed about the work of The Monarch School while they enjoyed lunch in one of the residential homes. Afterwards they went to the new building and assembled shelving for the storage closets. The interns worked hard and had fun working together. The Monarch School is grateful to have received the work of these great individuals and their time made a huge impact in the set up of our new facility. Thanks, Interns of ExxonMobil!

On Saturday, July 11, The Monarch School was featured on KIAH-TV “Going Green” Show with Yolanda Green. Click here to watch the broadcast!
