United Way of the Bluegrass Tuesday recognized Mayor Ed Burtner, Terry Davidson, Gina Lang, JoEllen Reed, Brian Walton and Judy Crowe, director of Clark County Community Services, as Community Connectors, those who “get things done” in the Bluegrass region.
According to a United Way news release, the six were among the 144 people recognized for their commitment to civic leadership. They were identified through a public nomination process.
“The purpose of the Bluegrass Community Connectors Project is to identify great civic connectors in the Bluegrass region who make significant things happen in our communities,” the news release states. “Bringing these individuals together can create the synergy necessary to advance our common good like never before.”
During a Community Connectors event Tuesday, the Connectors met for the first time as a group. They discussed the importance of their recognition, issues facing the community and how they could work together to improve central Kentucky.
