Massey’s Partners in Education program provides volunteers and financial assistance to a number of educational concerns in primary and secondary schools in Appalachia. This program provides financial support for academic materials, recreational equipment and building improvements to our partner schools.
Massey also rewards academic achievement and good classroom behavior by donating on average, $50,000 to $75,000 annually to support local academic banquets, school attendance incentives and the purchase of laptop computers and other equipment for students.
In addition to offering financial rewards to students who score exceptionally well on standardized tests at Scott High School in Madison, WV, we also provide laptops to students that achieve perfect attendance at Van Junior/Senior High School in Boone County, West Virginia.
Another annual Massey tradition funded by Partners in Education is Kids’ Day held at the company’s cabin in Aflex, Kentucky. On Kids’ Day, we provide a day of fun and outdoor activities to local school children and staff from Sacred Heart, Williamson Middle School, Johns Creek Elementary School and Southside Elementary School.
