The Huntington, WV, Post — one of the most active and decorated posts in the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) — draws members from Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. The Post also established and actively supports Marshall University's SAME student chapter.

Each February, during National Engineers Week, the Post hosts "Engineering Career Day" for approximately 130 high school sophomores interested in engineering or science, from more than 30 schools. At the event, students attend workshops, view exhibits, interact with engineers, and receive lunch and door prizes. The day culminates with the award of multiple scholarships.

In June, the Post supports Marshall University's Engineering Academy of Excellence (EEAE), which introduces high school students to the world of engineering during a week-long program on Marshall's campus (see www.Marshall.edu/EEAE).

Each October, the Post's young members host a golf scramble to raise funds for scholarships and to help support Marshall's student chapter. This year's golf scramble will take place October 7th at Hidden Cove Golf Course — one of Kentucky's top public courses — which sprawls through the scenic hills of Grayson Lake State Park.

In December, the Post hosts a formal dinner dance, complete with live band music, to celebrate the holiday season.
