U.S. Senator Bob Corker met with Volunteer State Community College students during a fundraising luncheon Monday for Community Outreach Making Partnerships At Sumner Schools (COMPASS). COMPASS promotes student success and partnerships with the business community. The Vol State students are recipients of the Educate and Grow Sumner County scholarship, which covers tuition and fees at Vol State for up to four semesters, after all other scholarship and grant sources are taken into account. All graduating Sumner County high school seniors can qualify for the program. It does have academic criteria as part of the Tennessee Scholars Initiative.
