2021 Rogers Scholar Emily Halcomb, a student at Letcher County Central High School, coordinated “Toothbrushes for the Needy” for her community service project.

Emily donated the toothbrushes collected in the community campaign to Grace’s Closet for distribution to those in need.

“This project means helping those in need. If I can spare a few days of my time to help a few years of someone’s life, then I have succeeded.”

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.
