This gold chord around my neck is extremely near and dear to me. It signifies that I was a Sevier County Partners in Progress Education Foundation recipient throughout my time at ETSU. Because of this program, I am able to graduate with my bachelors degree 100% debt free!!

Attached is a link to the scholarship foundation. Please consider donating whatever you feel led to, in order to keep this scholarship locally and provide it to other students just like me! I am lucky to be a PIP recipient and a 2021 grad๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›

We made the paper! Thank you Juli Watson Neil for writing this article in today's Mountain Press. Thank you to Northview Academy students Ty Robbins and Campbell Penland for sharing about their experience taking dual enrollment classes. Students receive both high school and college credit when they take dual enrollment classes. This means a student can enter college after high school graduation with almost a year of college credit depending on the number of classes they have taken. Thank you Emily Williford for talking about your college experience at ETSU at Sevierville and how Partners in Progress made it possible for you to graduate with NO student debt.

Excellent article!

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

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.

So proud of Madison.

Such an amazing program to offer scholarships for higher education to our students in Sevier County! Thanks for all you do!

Attention PIP Scholarship Students - you should have received a letter via snail mail, as well as an email, advising that you have met the requirements to receive the Fall 2020 PIP Scholarship. We are still waiting on financial verification on a few students. Keep in mind that this scholarship is a "last dollar" scholarship and will not post to your ETSU account until all other scholarships have been applied. Best of luck this Fall and let us know if there is anything we can do. ... See MoreSee Less

The Pasta Dinner & Auction originally scheduled for March 26 had to be cancelled when everything was shut down. It was rescheduled for August 27th however we are just not comfortable hosting an event of this size at this time. We have decided to postpone "once again".

If you have any questions, call Janice at 428-2212, Thank you for supporting Partners in Progress. Stay well. ... See MoreSee Less
