MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Management and employees of oil and natural gas company Antero Resources are pledging $100,000 to West Virginia University's law school.
The Morgantown school says the gift will help support the Center for Energy and Sustainable Development.
The center founded in 2011 provides students with opportunities to gain the experience necessary to practice law in the energy sector. It also conducts research and policy analyses on energy issues.
A portion of the gift also will go toward establishing the Kevin and Amy Ellis Endowed Scholarship. Kevin Ellis is a 2005 WVU law school graduate and works in Antero Resources' Bridgeport office.
The gift is part of the $750 million fundraising effort being conducted by the WVU Foundation.
