NEW Enrichment Coordinator, Bailey Jordan Warner

Welcome home, Bailey!

 

We are very excited to welcome Bailey Jordan Warner as Enrichment Coordinator! Bailey likes to say she “grew up with and in Community Education”, and that insider’s knowledge will help her hit the ground running. A graduate of BGHS, Bailey completed a bachelor of fine arts degree in art and a bachelor of arts degree with a double minor in business administration and marketing from WKU. Bailey brings a focus on marketing, administration, and art to her new position.

“My experience working at the Warren County Public Library has taught me the time it takes to prepare curriculum, activities, and lessons that not only engage community members in the task at hand but also enrich their day-to-day lives – the very reason that so many people seek out educational programs. I believe I can give the Community Education teachers the best support as well as give them the ideal tools to better serve the students.”

Bailey will be working with Enrichment instructors and students to create experiences that engage and excite students. We look forward to seeing Bailey grow the number of classes offered, expanding the number of teachers, and enhancing the variety and quality of the courses taught.

Bailey and her husband, Chase, live in Bowling Green with their two cats, Aspen and Frankie. They like to watch movies and find new recipes to make in their spare time.

You can reach out to Bailey if you have any questions or thoughts about the Enrichment program at 270.842.4281 or [email protected]

Starbucks Foundation’s Neighborhood Grant Recipient

 

On Tuesday, July 6, at Starbucks, Scottsville Road, Maria Jones, along with the other community managers, Paul and Courtney, presented Neighborhood Grants to local non-profits. To say we were excited to be a recipient and to receive a $1,000 grant would be an understatement. A total of $12,000 in grants was awarded to our Bowling Green-Warren County community.

The other recipients included BRASS INC., Down Syndrome of South Central Kentucky, Habitat for Humanity, Hope Harbor, and HOTEL INC.

In 2020, Teen Angel of BG-WC was the recipient of a $5,000 grant.

 

More about the Neighborhood Grants:

The Starbucks Foundation’s Neighborhood Grants program supports grassroots, community-led nonprofit organizations through catalytic investments in the form of small grants that range from $1,000 to $10,000. Through this unique program, The Starbucks Foundation invites Starbucks partners to nominate a local organization in their community. Neighborhood Grants also help build sustained local impact and inspire increased partner (employee) engagement with nonprofits organizations that work in our communities.

According to their website, “The Starbucks Foundation supports a wide range of causes through nonprofit investments, which include causes that Starbucks partners are passionate about addressing in their communities… Since 2019, thousands of Starbucks partners have nominated thousands of organizations across the U.S. and Canada, with more than 2,500 organizations receiving a grant, amounting to more than $5 million.”
