EDMONTON, Ky. (May 6, 2021) – Metcalfe County High School is proud to announce sophomore Whitley Gibson has been selected for the Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (ELI) at The Center for Rural Development.


Whitley is one of 30 students from Southern and Eastern Kentucky selected to attend the summer camp. The intensive week-long program provides students with an in-depth look at what it takes to start their own business venture – from idea development to building a model prototype of their business concept.


“Whitley is the first student from Metcalfe County to be accepted into the program,” said MCHS guidance counselor Brandy Morgan. “This is a big accomplishment and a well-deserved opportunity. We’re excited to see her business vision become a reality.”


The winning team of ELI’s Business Concept Competition will receive college scholarship opportunities within the region.


The program is presented tuition-free to students within The Center’s 45-county primary service area.
