2020 Rogers Scholar and South Laurel High School student Lindsay Cox donated 1,300 pre-filled Easter eggs, six bags of candy, 50 jumbo suckers, and 10 Easter egg dye kits to Calvary Baptist Church.
“My faith is a big part of my life. Whenever COVID-19 lockdowns shut down everything in 2020, I was completely saddened that I would be celebrating Easter at home. I also knew that this hurt many children in my area as well. Easter egg hunts and celebrations mean a lot to them too, so this year I wanted to ensure my community was able to make up for lost time together.”
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.
