Food City Scholarships

Food City Managers present a check to Dr. Mark Estepp, Southwest Virginia Community College President, to provide scholarships for local students. The scholarships were funded through a partnership between Food City and Friends of Coal of Pikeville/COA. Reusable commemorative shopping bags were sold with 100% of the proceeds from bag sales donated to assist in reclamation efforts and to provide scholarships for displaced miners and their children wishing to continue their education at a local college.
