Superintendent Danny Adkins congratulates Cameron Morrison on being selected Floyd County Schools’ 2020 Rogers Scholar and Teresa Johnson on being selected a Rogers Explorer.


To be considered for the Rogers Scholar program, a student must be a sophomore, in the 45 county service area and have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. Students must also want to develop their leadership and technology skills as well as entrepreneurship and community service. A total of 60 students will become Rogers Scholars. Initially, one student per county is selected. The 15 remaining spots will go to the next 15 students with the highest scores earned in the scoring process.


Superintendent Adkins comments, “Congratulations Cameron on being selected as Floyd County’s representative for the 2020 Rogers Scholar program. Cameron is currently a sophomore at Floyd Central High School, a member of the National Honor Society and plays basketball for the Jaguars.”


Adkins continues, “Cameron, as a Rogers Scholar, is scheduled to attend a five-day program this summer and have sessions in building leadership skills, working with professionals in engineering, healthcare and video production, and participating in team-building exercises. Being a Rogers Scholar gives Cameron access to scholarships at seventeen Kentucky colleges and universities.”


Commenting on an additional Rogers Scholar, Adkins says, “Congratulations Teresa! Teresa is an 8th grade student at Adams Middle who’s been selected as a 2020 Rogers Explorer and we are very proud of her!”


The Rogers Explorer program is for 8th grade students who live in the service area of The Center for Rural Development. The program is a three-day experience where students are engaged in educational and fun activities. Typically two students per county are selected. Remaining spots go to the top 120 scoring students.


Adkins concludes, “Cameron and Teresa will be fantastic representatives for Floyd County in the Rogers Scholars and Explorers programs. These two are great examples of our students excelling and stepping out in these uncertain times. We may not be having in person classes but our students are still shining.”


Cameron is the son of Rebecca Morrison of Kite, KY and Barry Morrison of Fresno, California.


Teresa Johnson lives in Blue River. She is the daughter of Glenn Johnson and Patricia Bays.


We do not know how COVID 19 may impact these programs.
