About Us

CEDAR (Coal Education Development and Resource of Southern West Virginia, Inc.) is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit corporation which began as a partnership between the coal industry, business community and educators. This partnership was formed through the joint efforts of the Eastern Kentucky CEDAR program, the Pocahontas Coal Association and the West Virginia Coal Association.
CEDAR's
mission is to facilitate the increase of knowledge and understanding of the many benefits the coal industry provides in daily lives by providing financial resources and coal education materials to implement its study in the school curriculum.
CEDAR's
target group is grades K-12 in Mingo, Logan, Boone, McDowell, Wyoming and Wayne counties in southern West Virginia.  Follow us on Facebook --- Cedar of Southern WV.
