Peabody Shades Cibola School District
Peabody Energy’s Lee Ranch and El Segundo Mines provided solar glasses to the Cibola County School District in Grants, N.M., for an annular solar eclipse. Employee volunteers ordered solar glasses with the Peabody Energy logo and distributed the glasses to seven school principals in Cibola County. Ken Chavez, Senior Human Resource Manager of Lee Ranch and El Segundo Mines, said that the program was designed “so that everyone had safe means to look at the eclipse. The program was a great way to broadcast the Peabody name and logo.” Overall, the program provided glasses to 3,300 kindergarten through 12th grade students.
