Shell Donates $25,000 to CSU Dominguez Hills

(Carson, CA) – Today, Shell Pipeline presented a check for $25,000 to California State University, Dominguez Hills.

Shell’s donation will go to support the university’s premier academic scholarship program known as the President’s Scholarship, the annual Student Research Day, the annual Faculty Awards Reception, and events surrounding the campus’s 50th Anniversary celebration, which began this semester and will continue through spring 2011.

Shell’s partnership with CSU Dominguez Hills goes beyond money. Company officials will be working with George Vinovich, chair and faculty member in the digital media arts program, and students in that program on a safety and visitor’s video for Shell, which will provide real-world learning opportunities for students while meeting the needs of Shell Pipeline’s Carson Distribution Facility. The facility’s manager, Don Herman, also serves on the CSU Dominguez Hills Foundation Board, the philanthropic nonprofit arm of the university.

“Shell is making remarkable contributions to our community and especially to the faculty, staff and students at CSU Dominguez Hills,” said university president Mildred García. “We thank them for their long-standing commitment.”
