Two Paintsville students chosen as Rogers Scholars
PAINTSVILLE John Compton and Dustin Woods, two Paintsville High School sophomores, were selected as Rogers Scholars for 2003.

The Rogers Scholars program is an intensive, week-long program focusing on developing skills in leadership, technology, entrepreneurship, and community service. Students apply during their sophomore year in high school, and attend the program during the summer before their junior year. Rogers Scholars spend the full week in Somerset, Kentucky at The Center for Rural Development and are able to participate in majors and minors in Video Production, Information Technology (networking, web development, etc.), and Engineering.

Becoming a Rogers Scholar is a very competitive process. A total of only 60 students are selected from Southern and Eastern Kentucky for the program. Usually, each county has only one or two student representatives.

This year Paintsville was pleased to have two students selected as Rogers Scholars. Congratulations to John Compton and Dustin Woods.

John is the son of Larry and Terry Compton of Louisa, and Dustin is the son of Terry and Sherri Woods of Paintsville.
