The Center for Rural Development’s Rogers Explorers program helps rising ninth-grade students interested in science, math, and technology start the journey toward careers in those in-demand career fields. Rogers Explorers spend three days and two nights on campus at some of Kentucky’s top colleges and universities, where experts will guide participants through hands-on assignments, all of which encourage creative thinking and teamwork and build leadership skills. The program, presented tuition-free to students within The Center’s 45-county primary service area, is hosted in partnership with colleges and universities across the region. The Rogers Explorers program is a highly interactive, hands-on program that prepares students for college and careers. The experience fosters a heart for community service and encourages students to seize their potential as the region's next generation of business leaders. Ashton Daniels will attend June 2nd – 4th at Asbury University. Loren Little will attend June 5th – 7th at Eastern Kentucky University. Sadie Moons will attend June 16th – 18th at Lindsey Wilson College. Evan Little will attend June 19th – 21st at the University of the Cumberlands.
