ARDMORE, Okla. — Noble Research Institute received a $10,000 check from Trammell Crow Company during a recent signing ceremony of the Noble Energy building to Carter County Facilities Trust last month.
The gift will be used by Noble Academy, the Noble Research Institute's youth education and outreach program. Noble Academy's mission is to educate student audiences about soil, agriculture, research and their relationship to the students. The gift will be used for teacher education, hands-on classroom education and curriculum development.
"We are grateful to the Trammell Crow Company for their generous donation to the Noble Research Institute," said Mary Kate Wilson, director of philanthropy, engagement and special projects. "The impact of this gift will be far reaching as it will allow Noble Academy to further our educational activities to impact more teachers and students."
The Trammell Crow Company helped provided architectural design services to Noble Energy in recent years. In honor of their work with Noble Energy, Trammell Crow wanted to provide a gift of appreciation. The companies agreed that the Noble Research Institute, which was established by philanthropist Lloyd Noble, who also founded Noble Energy, was the correct recipient of those funds.
