Fifteen college-bound students from three Lemont area high schools were awarded a CITGO Fueling Education Scholarship for excellence in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The students received their award from Peter Collarelli, Government and Public Affairs Manager and were recognized by their peers during a school assembly.

“The CITGO Lemont Refinery has been operating in the state of Illinois for more than 90 years. Being a loyal neighbor means investing in the future of our young people. Our hope is that on day, these students will bring their education and knowledge back to their communities,” said General Manager and Vice President of the CITGO Lemont Refinery, Jim Cristman.
