Phillips 66® Honors Teachers at Big 12 Basketball Championships | national company

KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Since 2018, the Phillips 66® Live to the Full Heroes™ program has honored individuals who have gone above and beyond to serve their communities by helping them advance their programs and endeavors. This year, Phillips 66 worked with DonorsChoose to donate $100,000 to teachers in Amarillo and Lubbock, Texas, and Kansas City, Missouri, to schools across the metro area. In addition to the donation, three extraordinary teachers – Mrs. Alexa Ybarra of Will Rogers Elementary in Amarillo, Texas; Ms. Caitlin McCartney of Guadalupe Centers High School in Kansas City, Missouri, and Ms. Andrea Smetana of Fox Hill Elementary in Kansas City, Missouri – have been selected as Live to the Full Heroes of 2022. Teachers will be honored at the Phillips Basketball Championships 66 Big 12 on Friday, March 11 and will receive an additional donation of $6,600 to fund projects in their schools and classrooms.

“According to a U.S. Department of Education survey, teachers spend an average of $500 of their own money each year on supplies. This need has only increased as they have helped their students adapt to the pressures that the pandemic has caused over the past two years,” says Sunny Lopez, brand manager at Phillips 66. “We are proud to be able to support teachers and meet a few of their needs.

The Live to the Full Heroes program takes place annually as part of the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships.

Phillips 66 will match generously 5x community donations for teachers in Kansas City, Lubbock or Amarillo metro area schools while funds are exhausted. Teachers new to DonorsChoose can access to create an account. The list of cities eligible for funding includes:

  • Kansas: Kansas City, Gardner, Independence, Lenexa, Merriam, Olathe, Overland Park, Shawnee, Stilwell, Blue Springs, Lees Summit, Gladstone, North Kansas City, Liberty
  • Texas: Amarillo, Lubbock

The Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championship is the longest running collegiate relationship in history. As part of this relationship, Phillips 66 also donates $66,000 annually to the Big 12 Conference Classroom Champions program.
