She coordinated the Rogers Scholars community service project in partnership with Food City and the school’s Youth Service Center. Food City customers donated food items or could purchase a pre-packaged bag of food to support “Friends in Need.”
“It was an eye-opening experience to learn that so many of my peers and their families struggled with not having enough to eat. I really appreciate the help from the Youth Service Center and Food City.”
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.
