The 15th-annual Coal Creek Scholars Day took place on December 19, 2016 at Briceville Elementary School. This unique program, sponsored by the Knoxville office, began in 2002 as a way for Briceville students to participate in community service projects and qualify for college scholarships. In return, scholars agree to inspire Briceville fourth and fifth graders to continue that tradition. At the event in December, Coal Creek Scholars helped deliver toys and gifts – funded by employees of the Knoxville office – to the children at Briceville school. Barry Thacker and Carol Moore of the Knoxville office were also present at the event.
