16 recent high school graduates have been chosen by the Arch Coal Foundation as 2015 Arch Coal Scholars. A US$2000 annual scholarship to an accredited college or university for up to four years is presented to each student.
"Congratulations to the 2015 class of Arch Coal Scholars," said John W. Eaves, Arch Coal Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "These young people are among the 'best of the best,' and we applaud them for their many diverse accomplishments and commitment to hard work. We look forward to continued success from them as they pursue their higher education goals and prepare for their future careers."
The Arch Coal Scholars program rewards exceptional academic achievement by the children of Arch Coal employees. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, leadership and participation in school and community activities. Also included in the application are a statement of education and career goals, a work history and an outside appraisal. The program is in its 26th year.
"Arch Coal and the Arch Coal Foundation have a long history of supporting education-related causes," Eaves said. "The Arch Coal Scholars program is an important piece of our efforts and allows us to invest in the future success of our employees' children and provide assistance as they endeavour to further their education."
