COSBY-Two more scholarships are now in place for local high school seniors.

One senior each from Cosby and Cocke County High Schools will receive a $2,500 Mission of Hope scholarship to be used at the school of the students' choice, according to Mission of Hope Executive Director Emmette Thompson.

Thompson, who brought literature about the scholarship to Cosby High last week, said the scholarship program grew out of Mission of Hope's ongoing work to provide school children in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia counties identified as "economically distressed" with food, clothes, hygiene items, and other necessities for educational success.

"This is part of Mission of Hope's growing work," said Thompson. "We are very excited to be able to expand our program in this way."
