COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Since its inception in 2004, the Tennessee Education Lottery has raised more than $2.5 billion for education in the state of Tennessee. Many of those dollars have funded Hope Scholarships for students, helping to fulfill their dreams of a college education.
Included have been students from Tennessee Tech and many other Tennessee-based colleges and universities. At a recent basketball doubleheader, Tennessee Tech took a moment to recognize the Tennessee Education Lottery and say thank you.
