Mount View student receives a scholarship with four wheels


WELCH (WVVA) - Paying for college is hard enough, but for some actually getting there is an even bigger challenge.

That's why one lucky college-bound senior at Mount View High School who has no means of transportation was chosen to receive a special scholarship -- one with four wheels.

Casey Booker was handed the keys to her new Ford Taurus during a ceremony at Mount View High Thursday.

Booker spends much of her time volunteering, but recently got a job to help pay for tuition at Bluefield State College.

The generous gift was made possible by the Appalachian Poverty Project and the School of Life Mission Group.

After she becomes a registered nurse, Booker says she hopes to return the favor to a future deserving student.
