Andi Fields of Letcher County has been named a 2010 Rogers Scholar in the largest class of participants selected by The Center for Rural Development in the history of the 13-year-old youth leadership program.
Fields, a sophomore at Letcher County Central High School, will be joining 72 high school students from southern and eastern Kentucky chosen to develop critical leadership and entrepreneurial skills this summer in a one-week session of Rogers Scholars held at The Center in Somerset.
During the week, Rogers Scholars will participate in team-building exercises, complete a community service project, meet leading business leaders and entrepreneurs, and work as a team to explore their interests in one of three declared majors: engineering, video production, or the newest off ering, healthcare.
All expenses, except travel to and from the host site, are provided free of charge to participants and their families.
Fields is the daughter of Andy and Vicki Fields of Jeremiah.
