2021 Rogers Scholar Lauren Scott displays one of the feminine hygiene product stations she placed in restrooms at Green County schools.

For her Rogers Scholars community service project, she organized EP (Ending Period Poverty) campaign to draw public awareness to the need for an adequate supply of feminine hygiene products.

“This project is personal and means a great deal to me as it’s something that I’ve struggled with and seen my peers struggle with as well. I am beyond amazed at the outpouring of support this community has offered in response to this project. I am hoping that this project will take us several steps closer to Ending Period Poverty.”

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.
