2020 Rogers Scholar and Casey County High School student Kara Davis planned and organized the Liberty Community Cleanup project following a devastating flood.

She coordinated the Rogers Scholars community service project in partnership with Mayor Steven Brown and tourism director Heather Cundiff.

The cleanup was launched on Sept. 19, 2020, as volunteers picked up litter and debris left behind by the flood waters. This project meant a lot to me as I care about the environment very deeply. To be able to better my community while I help the environment has been such a blessing.”

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.
