2021 Rogers Scholar and Pulaski County High School student Samuel Dalton organized a holiday campaign to provide food and toys for the Pulaski County Animal Shelter.

Samuel placed collection boxes at First Christian Church of Somerset and other community locations for volunteers to drop off donations for his “Fur-liz Navidad” community service project.

“This project was a very meaningful experience. My love of animals has been a constant throughout my life and being able to help the animal shelter was very fulfilling.”

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.
