"Well I've always had a passion and always had. I was 10 years old when I wrote to the Peace Corps. So it's always been a driving force for me to want to help others," said Vance.

The rotary also handed out scholarships for 2 Seniors from Sevier County High School. Tyler Hounshell and Christopher Justice were given $1,000 scholarships. The 2 were chosen from essays written.
