2019 Rogers Scholar and Pulaski County High School student Caleb Mullins worked with the Somerset Police Department, BSA Troop 79, and First Christian Church to repair 20 bicycles and donate them to foster children at Be The Village in February.

“My family is involved in foster care,” Mullins said. “I serve as a foster brother, so it meant a lot to me to be able to serve foster kids in our community. I also enjoyed leading my fellow Boy Scouts in this service project. We learned a lot about bicycle repair and enjoyed working together for a good cause.”

“I am so excited,” said the first recipient of one of the bikes. “This is the first new bike of my own I have ever had.”

Each graduate of The Center for Rural Development’s Rogers Scholars program is required to complete a community service project. For more information about Rogers Scholars, visit www.centeryouthprograms.com.
