To memorialize the life of his son, Gregory Linn Haught, Mr. Eldon J. Haught established the Gregory Linn Haught Citizenship Award Trust. Mr. Haught created the fund in 1977 at the United National Bank, and it was later transferred to the Foundation.

The Gregory Linn Haught Citizenship Award Trust has had a significant impact on the lives of many Ritchie County High School graduating seniors. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic achievement; honesty, lawfulness, and good moral character; concern for service in the furtherance of the rights, welfare, and well being of mankind; and concern and service in religious activities and endeavors.
