COLUMBIA, KY - A total of 30 rising high school freshmen from 16 Kentucky counties spent three days at Lindsey Wilson College this week to get an early taste of college life.



The students were among more 120 Kentucky students selected to Rogers Explorers. Sponsored by the Somerset-based Center for Rural Development, the Rogers Explorers program exposes rising ninth-grade students to science, mathematics and technology.

While at the liberal arts college from Sunday through Tuesday, the Rogers Explorers took classes in communication, energy and science from Lindsey Wilson professors; honed their leadership and critical-thinking skills in a session led by LWC Dean of Students Chris Schmidt; and participated in a videoconference with NASA officials.

"The purpose of the Rogers Explorers program is to give students a taste of college life before they enter high school so they have a better understanding of what they will be working toward in high school," said Delaney Stephens, youth programs coordinator for The Center for Rural Development. "It's a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students."

In addition to LWC, this year's Rogers Explorers are studying at University of the Cumberlands, Williamsburg, KY; Eastern Kentucky University, Richmond, KY; and Morehead State University, Morehead, KY. Students in the Center for Rural Development's 45-county primary service area are eligible for the tuition-free program.

Students who participated in the Rogers Explorers program at Lindsey Wilson were: Mallory Allen of Corbin (Whitley County); Brett Bartley of Hager Hill (Johnson County); Jordan Brock of East Bernstadt (Laurel County); David Burton of Stanford (Lincoln County); Peyton Coots of West Somerset (Pulaski County); Emma Cravens of Liberty (Casey County); Haily Davis of Somerset (Pulaski County); Haley Dicken of Albany (Clinton County); Quinn Endicott of Nicholasville (Jessamine County);

Nathaniel Lee Franklin of Columbia (Adair County); Sarah Hall of Science Hill (Pulaski County); Lauren Hammer of Tompkinsville (Monroe County); Hannah Harlan of Tompkinsville (Monroe County); Sarah Harne of Liberty (Casey County); Samantha Hasty of Science Hill (Pulaski County); Breece Hayes of Liberty (Casey County); Dylan Hopkins of Somerset (Pulaski County); Natalie Humble of Monticello (Wayne County); Caroline McCracken of Monticello (Wayne County);

Tiera McDermott of Greensburg (Green County); Tanner Miller of Paintsville (Johnson County); Jordan Owens of Irvine (Estill County); Mackenzie Polston of Albany (Clinton County); Kaylie Polston of Jamestown (Russell County); Alex Price of Liberty (Casey County); Brandon Pruitt of Somerset (Pulaski County); Jerrica Reed of Summer Shade (Metcalfe County); Kyle Stephenson of Burkesville (Cumberland County); Kamryn Stewart of Russell Springs (Russell County); and Eleanor of Tarter of Somerset (Pulaski County).
