We are so thankful for all the businesses in Sevier County that have participated in RoundUp this year. To date, we have received over $44,000 from RoundUp. This proves that every donation - no matter how small makes a difference. Thank you!
It was fun to receive a check from NASCAR Speedpark from their RoundUp. It was exciting to learn that one of their employees, Katie Davis - featured in the picture - is one of our scholarship recipients!

Many SCHS students over the past 12 years and even currently graduate before high school graduation with their Associates degree from WSCC. It is amazing how productive high school students can be when given opportunities to achieve their dreams.

We are so proud to be able to help with the cost of this endeavor.

Excellent article!
