2020 Rogers Scholar Emily Tutt organized one-on-one ACT math tutoring sessions this summer for Jackson County High School students.

“My goal for this project was to help students from my county increase their ACT scores and chances for college scholarships. Hearing that the students I tutored reached or exceeded their score goals made me feel like I was making a difference.”

The tutoring sessions were available at no cost to students.

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.
