   Rogers Scholars—The Center’s flagship youth program—is an intensive one-week summer program that provides leadership and college scholarship opportunities for high school students in 45 Kentucky communities to build their skills as the region’s next generation of business and entrepreneurial leaders. 
   “The Rogers Scholars program gives high school students an experience of a lifetime to grow their leadership skills while learning how to become more community-minded,” said youth programs coordinator Delaney Stephens. “Each graduate earns access to exclusive college scholarship offers from some of the state’s top-ranked colleges and universities upon completion of a required community service project.”

noah ALL RESILIENT TEAM

Casey County Athletic Director, Victor Black, nominated sophomore Noah Laman for the 2015 Tom Leach All Resilient Team. He was accepted and traveled with his family to Louisville to be recognized at the Kentucky High School Athletic Directors Association Awards Banquet last Thursday.
"All-Resilient Team, powered by National Guard Career Opportunities," celebrates high school male and female student-athletes who overcome adversity on their path to success. It might be an injury, a disability, a difficult family or health circumstance--something that puts an obstacle in their path that might derail someone who is less resilient.

Noah Laman / Casey County HS
Playing sports was everything to Noah. From t-ball, youth football and basketball, his life revolved around sports. He made all-star in football and was a top 10 state finisher in track and field during middle school. In eighth grade, he complained of knee pain and tests revealed a tumor in his femur. A diagnosis of bone cancer resulted in the removal of Noah’s knee and femur. He endured months of chemotherapy and surgeries for a prosthetic leg. Hospitalized for nearly a year, Noah thought his sports career was over when a surgeon suggested he could try shot put and discus. His freshman year, Noah made the regional tournament and also joined the cheer team where his signature move is lifting cheerleaders with one hand. His motto is “Keep the Faith.”
