Staff Report

PRESTONSBURG – A Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC) and Floyd County Early College Academy student was featured on the cover of the August Kentucky Living magazine.

Dakota Collins, 17, earned a scholarship from Big Sandy RECC to spend a week in Washington, DC in June.

“It was a tremendous experience,” said Collins, an aspiring artist who is a senior at Prestonsburg High School. She will graduate in May with an Associate in Art degree and plans to transfer to Morehead State University. “It is something I will never forget.”

During her visit, Collins and others representing RECC’s across the state met with congressional leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell; Senator Rand Paul, who is also a Republican candidate for President; and Congressman Hal Rogers.

The most exciting part of the trip for Collins?

“Touring the Smithsonian Art museum,” she answered. “And hearing the Navy band at the Iwo Jima memorial.”
