Six Knox County Middle School Students have been selected to attend the 2015 Roger’s 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, Asbury University, and The University of Pikeville.
Knox County Middle School students Corey Bright, Hannah Daniels, Grace Evans, Dane Imel, Toni McCombs, and Leanna Osborne were among 180 students from The Center’s 45-county service area of Southern and Eastern Kentucky selected to participate in the 2015 Rogers Explorers program.
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 the Southern and Eastern Kentucky region.
