WPX Energy contributes to educational arts program

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

WPX Energy is going to donate US$ 25 000 to the Any Given Child arts program which benefits Tulsa Public School students. Marcia MacLoed, WPX Energy senior vice president of human resources and administration, will present the cheque at a ceremony.

MacLoed said, ‘we are so honoured to give this gift to Any Given Child in the name of John H. Williams, whose passion and investments in the arts greatly benefitted this community. We believe in this program and its commitment to give arts exposure to thousands of Tulsa students.’

Williams, who died in May this year, was the former chairman and CEO of The Williams Cos. And the namesake of Tulsa’s Performing Arts Centre. WPX Energy spun off from Williams in late 2011, and is an independent, publicly traded company that produces natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids.

Tulsa is now one of 11 cities across the US now participating in the Kennedy Centre for the Arts’ Any Given Child program, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, TPS and the Mayor’s Office, along with 11 sponsoring arts organisations in Tulsa.
