Community Involvement

I also enjoyed serving on the Board of Directors for the Friends of Lost River, Camp Joy Baptist Summer Camp, Bowling Green Housing Authority, Bowling Green – Warren County Jaycees and the Boys Club of Bowling Green.

Judi and I have also had the pleasure of being a part of some great opportunities in our community. We started the Ken and Helen Given Scholarship and Hughes Kirkpatric Scholarship.  We also founded the J. Marshall and Judi Hughes Theater at the L&N Train Depot in Bowling Green. 6-H-and-C-Stand-for-Kids-Ev

With Hughes & Coleman, I co-founded, Kids Are Special®, a non-profit child safety program. Kids Are Special® promotes fingerprinting of children for identification purposes and encourages bicycle safety through the sale of certified bicycle helmets at below cost.

I also co-founded Hope Blooms of Bowling Green, a daffodil garden located at the Phil Moore Park. The daffodils symbolize hope for cancer patients, cancer survivors, and their families across Warren County. Daffodils, one of the first flowers to bloom every spring, symbolize hope for a cancer free world.

I was happy to launch Arrive Alive, a program that reaches into the schools of south central Kentucky. This program brings a level of awareness to children in our area about the dangers of driving or riding with someone under the influence of alcohol. It also encourages teens and parents to sign a pledge not to drink and drive.
