Family Taking Creative Approach To Raise Money For College Tuition

College tuition can be expensive, but one local family is taking a creative approach to raise money.

Felicity Mills is from nearby Cumberland Gap Tennessee and is a senior at Randolph College in Lynchburg, Virginia. Her family is selling one dollar chances on Ferguson, a four foot tall teddy bear, to raise money. Her mother says Felicity earned a scholarship, but still has trouble covering the $34,000 dollars a year for school.

"Felicity's a really good person. She doesn't want to get things for nothing, she works hard, so as her mom, I want to try to help her all I can," Judy Mills said.

The bear is at the Parkway Vendors Mall off 25-E near Middlesboro and several other business are helping to sell chances. Felicity Mills will draw a winner when she's back in town from school December 15th.
