BP Fueling Communities Grant

BP Fueling Communities Grant

USC Salkehatchie recently received a $6,500 grant donation from BP Fueling Communities, thanks to alumnus Terrill Tuten.

The funds will be used to further the mission of USC Salkehatchie in providing higher education opportunities for students in the rural Lowcountry.

BP Fueling Communities provides grants to local organizations nominated by local BP business owners to support the communities in which they do business. Tuten is president of Rainbow Oil Company, Inc., a gas distribution company.  He nominated USC Salkehatchie for the grant donation.

BP Fueling Communities gives back to local organizations that support health, education, youth, food and housing in order to spread charity and goodwill wherever it is needed most.

“We thank Mr. Tuten for his support of USC Salkehatchie in educating the next generation,” said Regional Campus Dean Ann Carmichael. “We appreciate the support we receive from our industry leaders such as he who realize the important role that Salkehatchie plays in this region.”
