2020 Rogers Scholar and Knott County Central High School student Ethan Gayheart organized a cleanup drive for the Frogtown community.

With a little help from the youth of Knott County, volunteers cleaned up trash and debris around the community where Ethan’s family was raised.

“This project meant a lot, because it directly helped the people who raised me. It also has a deeper meaning because this place is where my family grew up and eventually led to my own being.”

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.
