The Pelicans MVP (Most Valuable Pupil) Program, presented by Chevron, provides students in the Recovery School District (grades 4th-8th) with incentives to encourage them to excel academically. Quarterly incentives include a Pelicans cap and jersey. In January, the team hosts a field trip to a Pelicans game including lunch, backpack and a t-shirt. Throughout the year, students can also participate in an essay and art contest in which the winners receive cash prizes. This past school year, 60% of the students increased their grade point average by at least 0.5.

“By investing in education with the Recovery School District, Chevron and the Pelicans are helping students pursue their dreams and use their talents to enrich where they call home.”
