156,000 Knox County school coupon books sold this year

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Knox County Schools celebrated another year of successful coupon book sales at a luncheon Thursday, where they announced more than 156,000 books were sold in the county this year.

That means $1.3 million went back to the kids’ classrooms. Schools got to keep $8 from each coupon book they sold.

“In this day and age so many of our schools put it right back into technology. That’s such a big part of learning for our schools, and puts right back in the classroom, and helps enhance each student’s experience,” said Carrie Witt, Knox County Schools business partnerships facilitator.

Knox County officials hope to sell $1.5 million worth of coupon books next year. They’ve sold almost four million coupon books and raised more than $30 million for Knox County students since 1989.
