High school student Subhash Gutti of Floyd County graduated this summer from The Center for Rural Development’s 2013 Class of Rogers Scholars.
Gutti attended a one-week summer session of Rogers Scholars held for the first time on the campus of Lindsey Wilson College in Adair County.
“The Rogers Scholars program puts you in an environment where you are surrounded by the best intellectual leaders within your age group from all over the state,” said Gutti, a student at The Piarist School. “It’s only inevitable that you make friendships that last a lifetime and learn skills that will be useful in the years to come.”
The program provides leadership and exclusive college scholarship opportunities for rising high school juniors in Southern and Eastern Kentucky to realize their full potential as the region’s next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs.
“This year’s class of Rogers Scholars is an exceptional group of young leaders,” said Delaney Stephens, community liaison and youth programs coordinator for The Center. “I have high hopes for all of them as they return to their hometowns in Southern and Eastern Kentucky. There is no limit on what these Scholars can do, and I look forward to seeing them develop into future business and civic leaders this region needs.”
Subhash is the son of Sai and Sujata Gutti.

The Rogers Scholars program is provided free of charge to selected participants within The Center’s 45-county primary service area and is operated solely on financial contributions and charitable donations.
The program, started in 1998, continues to pursue a goal set by U.S. Congressman Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-05) that “no young person should have to leave home to find his or her future.”
Graduates of the Rogers Scholars program earn access to exclusive scholarship offers from 18 partner colleges and universities.
