School Foundation Awards $47,000 in Scholarships


The Reeds Spring School Foundation provided financial assistance to 24 recent graduates in the form of scholarships. Reeds Spring seniors had to apply and interview for the scholarships, which totaled over $47,000.

The Foundation typically raises the bulk of the money through an event called PACK NIGHT at Dolly Parton’s Stampede. That event could not be held this year due to the pandemic, so the Foundation relied on donations from many generous businesses and families.

The Foundation also unveiled a new award for a community member who quietly makes a big difference. The Wolf in the Darkness Community Award went to Murriel Mills.
