SSC Services for Education Gives Back to Knoxville Students & Teachers

January 23, 2023

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., January 23, 2023 – SSC Services for Education (SSC), a leading national K-12 and higher education facilities and grounds management provider, has been headquartered in Knoxville since its founding in 1969. With operations expanding yearly, the company honors its Knoxville roots by supporting students and educators locally through donations and scholarships.

In August of 2021, SSC launched a Clear the List initiative. Through this program, SSC supported local teachers who directly impacted the children of our corporate office employees by clearing their Amazon wish lists and providing the necessary supplies and resources the teachers needed to prepare their classrooms for the upcoming academic year. In 2022, the program was expanded to include more local educators and additional educators at SSC partner schools throughout the US. In total, SSC donated over $8,300 in school supplies and resources directly to teachers to help start the year on a great note.

“Thank you so much for clearing the list for our teachers. The teachers rarely get everything on their lists and getting it at the start of the year was a huge bonus for the teachers, parents, and students. I want to thank you especially for including Quinn’s reading teacher. She possibly never would have gotten these special books that will be a part of teaching Quinn how to read – the most fundamental part of a child’s education. Children with dyslexia and other learning differences have it hard enough and we have been thankful to have found a school with a great reading specialist and having these books will help even more. Thank you for caring about our families and their education.” – Knoxville Episcopal School Parent

During the 2022-2023 school year, SSC also stepped in to fill an additional need in the Knoxville community. When South-Doyle High School could not find a sponsor for their personal finance program before the start of the school year, SSC sponsored the program through Ramsey Education. This sponsorship allows students to continue receiving essential education on financial literacy through an easy-to-use, turn-key Ramsey Solutions’ Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum that teaches students the value of living on less, avoiding debt, and investing for their future. “At each site across the nation, we look for the impact we can create in our communities. Our corporate office is no different. We have been a part of the Knoxville community for over 53 years, and we know firsthand how important creating healthy environments is to student and greater community success,” says SSC Services for Education CEO Seth Ferriell. At SSC, we are always looking for ways to inspire our communities to grow through education and support our students inside and outside of the classroom.
