Eastern Kentucky students attending a leadership conference in Somerset hear from former governor Paul Patton.
Leaders of the conference say the best and brightest attend the Rogers Scholars camp to hone their leadership skills in the community and in the classroom.
“These are the students that have the abilities to succeed and will absolutely be leaders as they grow older. And so it's important that they understand that there are certain skills that a leader needs,” Patton said.
Students in the program receive full scholarships to a choice of several Kentucky schools.
