2020 Rogers Scholar and Bath County High School student Clara Toy distributed food items from the Grace Gospel Tabernacle food bank to families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Giving back to my community during this trying time means the world to me. I have been extremely lucky to have two working full-time parents, and although both were frugal, we always had plenty to eat.”

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.
