Pellissippi State book-and-rummage sale to benefit students

Prowling through the gently used items at the upcoming Second Hand Heart and Book Sale Fundraiser can pay off not only for attendees who grab great deals but also for students who attend Pellissippi State Community College.

The combination book-and-rummage sale is set for March 7 and 8 at the Hardin Valley Campus. Items available include books, CDs, DVDs, videos, vinyl records, magazines, calendars, puzzles, computer games and assorted household goods.

Pellissippi State’s Administrative Council and Support Staff Council are coordinating the sale. Proceeds go to the Pellissippi State Foundation, which supports student enrichment services by providing scholarships, new technology and equipment. Funds raised are earmarked for the coordinating councils’ scholarships.

The Administrative Council Scholarship awards $1,500 per academic year to a Pellissippi State student who demonstrates financial need, maintains a 2.5 GPA and meets other selection criteria.

Two Support Staff Council Scholarships are available either to a student whose parent is a Pellissippi State support staff employee or a student who meets Support Staff Council criteria. Six students were awarded Support Staff Council Scholarships last semester, with another five scholarships awarded spring semester.

Hours are as follows: Thursday, March 7, 8 a.m.-6 p.m., and Friday, March 8, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. The event takes place in the Goins Building College Center.
