2024 Rogers Explorers

Congratulations to CCMS 8th graders John Dylan Cooksey and Mason Musk on being selected for the 2024 Rogers Explorers program.

The Rogers Explorers program is an intensive three-day, two-night program focused on cultivating skills in leadership, technology, math, science, and community service. It is developed, coordinated, and supervised by The Center for Rural Development in partnership with University of the Cumberlands, Lindsey Wilson College, Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University, University of Pikeville, and Union College.

Activities throughout the program are both educational and fun. Classroom projects are very hands-on, so do not expect to be bored! Explorers are able to actively participate in practical college courses, fine-tune leadership skills, and develop a network of friends and resources throughout our Southern and Eastern Kentucky region. Students from The Center’s 45-county service area may apply during their eighth-grade year.

Participants will attend the program in Williamsburg, Columbia, Richmond, Morehead, Pikeville, or Barbourville. All lodging, meals, and program expenses (with the exception of transportation to and from the program) are offered at no cost.

John Dylan & Mason will participate in the Rogers Explorers program this summer.
