He was an all-district and an all-region soccer player, a state finalist in speech competition and a member of the school's regional champion quick-recall team. The Washburn Memorial Scholarship is named for the late daughter of a former Arch Coal director and is given each year to the Arch Coal Scholar that received the judges' highest ranking.

"Arch Coal and the Arch Coal Foundation have a longstanding commitment to education, ranging from honoring outstanding teachers to supporting innovative classroom projects and institutions of higher learning," Eaves said. "The Arch Coal Scholars program is an important investment in our employees and in the future of tomorrow's leaders."
