The Arch Coal Foundation has donated $116,000 to Missouri University of Science and Technology to update the campus’s mine rescue and safety laboratory.
“Missouri S&T has one of the strongest mining engineering programs in the nation,” said John W. Eaves, president and chief operating officer of Arch Coal Inc. “That’s why we’re pleased to fund the school’s expansion in mine rescue and safety programs, which will further enhance the level of technical expertise of the next generation of leaders in the energy industry.”
“We are proud that the Arch Coal Foundation recognizes the role our mining engineering program plays in providing future leaders to the industry,” says Dr. Samuel Frimpong, chair of mining and nuclear engineering at Missouri S&T. “This gift from Arch Coal will help us continue to attract the best and brightest engineering students to Missouri S&T.”
The Arch Coal Foundation provides support to organizations that engage in improving the quality of life in the communities in which Arch Coal operates. The Arch Coal Foundation focuses much of its giving in the area of education. The company is based in St. Louis.
