Shell Oil Company may no longer operate the refineries near Roxana High School, but the company has reminded Roxana its' still committed to being a part of the community. To that end, a $50,000 grant was awarded to the Roxana Schools Foundation on behalf of the company last week.
The money will be used to complete a new student center at Roxana High School according to district officials. The new facility will include a technology center, a coffee shop and other tools that officials say will give students a place to congregate after school hours. The student center is expected to be completed by October.
