Michael Sanders is in his second year of carpentry at the Paducah Area Technical Center, but he is already getting ready to put his skills to use, taking part in a local Habitat for Humanity project.

The junior at Paducah Tilghman High School will be among several volunteers to build a home in Paducah for a family in need.

"It's definitely exciting," he said. "It's going to be neat to get more of a hands-on feel with the real-world construction. It feels good to be doing it for a good cause, just knowing that you're building this and putting hard work into it, and it's going to go to a family that really needs it."

From a very young age, Addie Rogers has had the ability to not only spot a need, but be a part of the solution.

When people asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would confidently tell them she wanted to be president of the United States.

Things haven't changed much for the Paducah Tilghman senior, who has worked diligently to lay the academic groundwork needed to reach her collegiate goals. With a hope to one day run for public office, Rogers has begun to immerse herself in local government, interning with Paducah Mayor Brandi Harless and the Paducah Human Rights Commission.

"Growing up, politics and government were always really important to me," Rogers said. "I was fortunate enough to have parents who taught me to give back and get involved."

Rogers, the daughter of Mike and Rebecca Rogers of Paducah, is the Paducah Bank Teen of the Week.
