About The Event:
Knox County Schools and the Partners in Education Foundation is pleased to announce that we are hosting the virtual “Pumpkin PIE” Hike & Bike for Schools from November 13 – December 2, 2021 to support our scholarship program for Knox County High Schools.

Formerly known as the Barney Thompson Scholarship, the PIE Foundation Scholarship is presented annually to one senior from each high school in the Knox County Schools system. The value of the scholarship is $500 dollars. We believe this scholarship will make a significant positive impact for KCS graduates as they pursue their academic careers after high school.

Your kind and generous support will benefit the PIE Scholarship fund. All sponsorship levels are welcomed and appreciated. Thanking you in advance for your consideration.
