Remember The Miners is excited to announce the release of the official Huggins’ Horrible Hankie. The hankies are available for purchase online at the Remember The Miners store and are also available at Little General Stores starting today.
Coach Bob Huggins is the Honorary Chairman of Remember The Miners. Fans are encouraged to wave the distinctive bright yellow hankie during sporting events to show support for West Virginia’s beloved basketball coach.
Proceeds from the sale of Huggins’ Horrible Hankies will benefit the Scholars Program. The Remember The Miners Scholars Program was created in 2011 to provide financial aid to miners, dependents of miners, and students pursuing higher education in the mining industry. Remember The Miners and the West Virginia Coal Foundation created the Scholars Program to support families of the West Virginia mining community. Awardees of the scholarship are miners, dependents of miners, or students pursuing higher education in the mining industry.
Applications for the Fall 2012 Scholars Program are open now, and can be found here.
Buy your Huggins’ Horrible Hankie online at the Remember The Miners Store, or in your local Little General Store.
