VIA SEEKS NOMINATIONS FOR VOLUNTEERS OF THE YEAR AWARDS

 

Volunteers in Action (VIA), made up of representatives from various agencies and organizations that rely on volunteerism, is seeking nominations for its 31st annual Volunteer of the Year Awards. Sponsored this year by Truist (formerly BB&T), American Legion Post 23, and BGMU.

Nominations are needed in SIX categories: the Anne Grubbs Spirit of Service Award, which honors a person excelling in quality, length, and spirit of service to others; the Team Award, which recognizes a group that has worked together to provide outstanding volunteer service in the community; and the Rookie Award, which recognizes an individual or group that started volunteer service within the past 24 months. This year we have added three new awards in light of our recent history: the Pandemic Response Award, which recognizes an individual or group who has made an impact in our community in response to the pandemic; the Tornado Relief Award, which recognizes an individual who has made an impact in our community in response to the recent tornadoes; and the Tornado Relief- Team Award, which recognizes those groups who have made an impact in our community in response to the recent tornadoes.

Nominees will be judged on:

  • history of community activity
  • demonstration of cooperative attitude
  • the impact that the volunteer’s efforts had on the organization and its clients

All nominees will be recognized as winners from their organizations and will receive a memento and certificate at the Volunteer of the Year Awards ceremony scheduled for Sunday, April 24 at the Bob Kirby Branch of the Warren County Public Library, starting at 2 p.m. The award recipients will receive plaques. 

 

All nominations must be submitted on or before 4 p.m. on March 25 to:

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]
