2019 Rogers Scholar and Lawrence County High School student Faith Bradley organized a gown drive for the “Night to Shine” event in Louisa, KY.

“Night to Shine” is an annual dance designed to provide a special night for teenagers and adults with special needs. Faith organized a drive for people to donate formal wear to those who planned to attend.  She collected around two dozen gowns.

“I was so excited to do this project, but even more so after seeing the smiles on the faces of some of the women when selecting their dresses,” Bradley said. “I wanted to make sure that all of the women would have a variety of colors and sizes to choose from. Every woman deserves the opportunity to feel like a “queen” for a night. I am beyond blessed to have had the opportunity to contribute to this wonderful event.”

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.
