Friends of Coal License Plate Sales Fund UK Mining Engineering Scholarships

Published: Oct 9, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 9, 2012) ― The Friends of Coal organization donated $83,000 in support of scholarships for undergraduate mining engineering students at the University of Kentucky. The donation was presented during half-time of the Mississippi State-University of Kentucky football game. The funds for the donation originated from the purchase of Friends of Coal license plates by Kentuckians across the Commonwealth.

 

“The mining engineering department faculty, staff and students at UK extend our sincere appreciation to all Kentuckians who have purchased a Friends of Coal license plate, which generated the funds supporting our scholarship program,” said Rick Honaker, chair and professor of the Department of Mining Engineering. “During these troubling economic times, the scholarship support will enable parents of Kentucky students to realize their dreams of providing an opportunity for their children to receive a four-year engineering degree and pursue a very rewarding professional career in the mining industry.”

 

To date, the Friends of Coal license plate sales have provided $158,000 in scholarship funds to the University of Kentucky.
