Girls on the Run Central Kentucky is excited to announce that Stevie Lowery has been appointed as expansion representative to the board of directors.
Lowery will serve a two-year term, acting as an advocate on behalf of the communities that Girls on the Run serves outside of Fayette County.
In 2011, Lowery, publisher of The Lebanon Enterprise, along with Lee Morgeson, physical education teacher at Glasscock Elementary School, kicked off the Girls on the Run program locally. Nine girls participated during Marion County’s inaugural year. In an effort to enable more girls to participate, Lowery organized a fund raiser - The Lebanon Enterprise Main Street Treadmill Challenge - which raised more than $4,000 for the Girls on the Run program. This year, the program will be expanded into two schools in Marion County - Glasscock Elementary and Lebanon Elementary - and it’s expected that a total of 32 girls will participate.
The Girls on the Run Central Kentucky 2012-14 executive board members are Emily Morris, president; Katherine Stone, past president, Brittany Lippert, vice president; Laura Smith, secretary; Jordan Donovan, treasurer; and Mandy Schott, marketing.
Girls on the Run Central Kentucky looks forward to working with Lowery to help more girls celebrate their bodies, honor their voices and embrace their inner gifts.
