PIKEVILLE Ky. (WYMT) - Over in Pike County Tuesday was the Community Trust Bank - WYMT Pike County distribution luncheon, where checks were handed out to the six Pike County schools.
Just under 35,000 dollars was raised this year with a total of just over 5,800 dollars evenly distributed to the schools.
"As one of the principals put it, given the the current economic conditions that face our region, and much of the country", said Community Trust Bank of Pikeville Market President Brett Keene.
"Being able to have an event like this with Community Trust Bank and WYMT to help ease some of the expense burdens on the schools and their football programs. Just giving the timing of everything, it's really helpful for them and their programs to be able to have this money throughout the year."
