2021 Rogers Scholar Leigh Hicks, a student at Campbellsville High School, donated stuffed animals and fleece blankets to the pediatric surgical center at Taylor Regional Hospital for her community service project. She set up collection sites at different locations in Taylor County to accept donations for the community drive.

“I have always had a soft spot for children with health problems, since I am one too. I wanted to help get rid of some of the stress that comes with being in a hospital or having a procedure done.”

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.
