COLLEGIATE SUMMIT — Student representatives from Alice Lloyd College, (second from left) Sydney Whitaker, Letcher County; Todd Duff, Breathitt County; and Brittney Adams, also from Letcher County, joined students from Kentucky colleges and universities at a Collegiate Summit on Sept. 18 at The Center for Rural Development in Somerset hosted by the Center’s Higher Education Consortium. Joining them are (from left) Lonnie Lawson, president and chief executive officer of the Center; U.S. Rep. Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-05), and J.P. Blevins. Rogers and Blevins, a former University of Kentucky basketball player and motivational speaker, were the keynote speakers at the event, which brought students together from across the region to discuss issues contributing to the out-migration of some of the best and brightest from southern and eastern Kentucky. The summit was funded by the Appalachian Regional Commission.
