||Marathon committed $270,000 to the TCISD Foundation for the Future to implement a STEM lab at Texas City High School.
The Marathon STEM SmartLab will impact more than 1,850 Texas City High School students in grades 9-12 beginning August 2016. This program will be supportive of students in many ways, including those pursuing further education in engineering, those enrolled in the Industrial Trades Center programs, and those in general studies to support math and science learning.
This STEM SmartLab will provide an extension of curriculum for those students who enrolled in the Valero STEM program at Blocker Middle School. For those students not previously enrolled in the Valero STEM Program at Blocker this new lab will provide exploratory studies that will enable high school students to make an educated decision on future career paths.

Sting Shooters vs. the Harlem Ambassadors!
The Texas City ISD coaches and teachers suited up and took on the the Harlem Ambassadors in a fun basketball game on February 2, 2015 in the TCHS gym.
This Harlem-style basketball featured high-flying slam dunks, games with the kids and hilarious comedy. All proceeds benefited TCISD students in the classroom in this family-fun fundraiser hosted by the TCISD Foundation for the Future.
Members of the Sting Shooters included: TCISD School Board Member Bryan Thompson; Blocker Middle School's Alexandra Angelares, Jermain Anderson and George Harrison; Heights Elementary's Principal Nathan Jackson, Michael Tanner, Robert Estell, Robin Bacon and Jacob Hon; Kohfeldt's Mike Littles; Levi Fry's Kandid Lea; Northside's Justin Long and Starla Ray; Roosevelt-Wilson's Curtis Jackson; Texas City High School's Chase Fickessen, Rogers Charles, Sean Gale, Shone Evans, Colin Lien, Allen Thompson and Christian Dunn.
The Harlem Ambassadors show is quality family entertainment and is fun for audiences of all ages, from kids to kids-at-heart. Families laugh together at the Harlem Ambassadors' hi-jinks and are amazed at their high-flying slam dunks and comic antics. The Ambassadors play against a team comprised of people from the local community, adding to the fun and spontaneity of the show and making every game one-of-a-kind. The Harlem Ambassadors put on activities during half time for the kids that included give away items.
Earlier that day, the Harlem Ambassadors spoke to the youth through "Stay in School, Stay off Drugs, Don't be a Bully" school assemblies that encouraged students to work hard in school, respect themselves and their peers, listen to adult authority figures, believe in themselves, set goals, not be a bully and focus on their education.
