RECC Raises Money for Rogers Scholars

South Kentucky RECC’s 20th annual golf scramble recently earned $18,000 to benefit the Rogers Scholars program.

The program provides high school students from 45 counties, including Russell, in southern and eastern Kentucky with an intensive one-week summer session to help spark their entrepreneurial spirit, leadership, and commitment to rural Kentucky, and in several cases leads to full scholarships to Kentucky colleges. Approximately 19 colleges and universities across the region have made scholarship opportunities of $8 million available for graduates for the Rogers Scholars program.
