For every step he made on Oct. 16, 2021, supporters pledged to donate to the Step-A-Thon. Tyler participated in track practice and a marching band competition on the day of the event, which increased his step count.
“The Center for Rural Development gave me the opportunity to spend a week with like-minded students from all over Kentucky. My experiences at Rogers Explorers and Rogers Scholars are something I’ll never forget. It was nice to be able to donate to a program that does so much for the youth of Kentucky.”
Graduates of The Center for Rural Development’s Rogers Scholars program are required to complete a community service project. For more information about Rogers Scholars, visit www.centeryouthprograms.com.
