The Harlan Center hosted an informational program for Rogers Scholars and Rogers Explorers on Thursday. Pictured here, Delaney Stephens speaks about the programs which are available to promising Kentucky Students. Aimee Blanton, President of the Harlan County Chamber of Commerce said the program was mainly for eighth- and 10th-grade students in the region. “The Chamber of Commerce and the Center for Rural Development partnered together to bring this information to the students and their parents,” said Blanton.
These educational programs are available to students from all districts in Harlan County. Rogers Scholars is a one-week camp for upcoming 11th-grade students interested in developing a network of friends and mentors across the region. Rogers Explorers is an opportunity for upcoming ninth-grade students to spend three days and two nights at some of Kentucky’s top colleges and universities.
