SIKESTON, MO. (May 27, 2014) – Not very many performers can say they've been in the “business” for over 50 years. Not many can say they've played an instrumental role in the success of an organization that solely exists for the purpose of helping children with special needs. Not many can say they've returned five times throughout the years to hold concerts and continue to raise money for that organization. And certainly not many can say they've held an interest in that same organization for close to 40 years! But yes, Kenny Rogers has certainly earned his name on the building of that very organization…The Kenny Rogers Children’s Center in Sikeston, Missouri.
“It’s scary to think about where the Center would be today if it weren't for Kenny Rogers. Or rather, where the Center would NOT be today”, states Michelle Fayette, Executive Director of the Center. “The current building we are in today was made possible through Kenny’s efforts, the expansions, new equipment, updated equipment, and so much more, all are because he has cared enough throughout the years to continue his efforts in furthering our mission. You definitely can't make old friends like that! Thousands of children have come through these doors and have received life-changing therapies all because of him,” she adds. The Center covers numerous counties in Southeast Missouri and provides therapy to approximately 450 children on a monthly basis.”

PHOENIX, Az. (January 23, 2014) – Just three months ago, American icon Kenny Rogers was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. And now, last week in Phoenix, he picked up another career achievement, but this time it’s in recognition of his other talent and passion—photography.
Rogers received an honorary master of photography degree from Professional Photographers of America (PPA) at its annual conference, Imaging USA, during the PPA Award & Degree ceremony, last Tuesday night, Jan. 14, at Symphony Hall in Phoenix, where more than 145 award and degree recipients were honored. Prior to the ceremony, he gave an exclusive live Q&A with convention-goers, discussing his life and work. Rogers also shared photos from his forthcoming photography book, Places I’ve Been, Things I’ve Seen.
