TRiO selling mums to raise scholarship funds

As part of Northeast State’s Because of You scholarship campaign, the TriO CluB will sell mums on the Blountville campus from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Sept. 26-28 while supplies last. Proceeds will go toward scholarship funds for TRiO Student Support Services participants.

TRiO Student Support Services provides counseling, advising, resources, and a variety of cultural experiences that support and promote retention, graduation, and transfer.

Mums the word Sept. 26-28 when the TRiO Club these festival fall flowers.

While supplies last, choices include 8-inch and 12-inch mums in the colors of red, purple, white, yellow, and orange. The 8-inch mums are $7 each or three for $20 and the 12-inch mums are $15 each.

The sale will take place at the Technical Education building on the main campus, 2425 Highway 75, Blountville, Tenn.

During 2011-12, TRiO CLuB contributed $1,000 to the TRiO Participant Scholarship Fund and three TRiO participants were awarded scholarships for 2012-13.

Last year’s Because of You campaign saw an overwhelming response from faculty and staff, raising more than $50,000 for new and existing scholarships for 17 programs.
