Huntington, WV (HNN) – The final payment of a $250,000 commitment to Marshall University has been made by Massey Energy. The funds, which are designated for the Fred and Christine Shewey Athletic Building, will assist with recent renovations to the facility that will be completed prior to the beginning of the 2008 football season.
“From their Doctors for our Communities (DOC) program to their support of the Lewis College of Business, Massey Energy’s commitment to Marshall University is very much appreciated,” said Marshall President Stephen J. Kopp. “We thank them for completing this commitment to the Fred and Christine Shewey Athletic Building, and hope that their generosity will continue for the benefit of future generations of Marshall students.”
“We are proud to be part of the Fred and Christine Shewey Athletic Building Project,” said Don Blankenship, Massey Energy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “With more than 75 percent of Marshall University students being from West Virginia, this learning institution is changing lives within the Mountain State by allowing them to earn an education to better themselves and provide for their families. Our support of both academic and athletic programs at Marshall University is a sense of pride for everyone at Massey Energy.”
