The director of education for Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky has been named as Lori Gammons.
All JA educational initiatives in the Bowling Green and southcentral Kentucky regions will be under Gammons’ direction.
Over 10,000 local K–12 children will benefit from these programmes’ emphasis on educating them for the workforce, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy.
Gammons first came to Bowling Green in 1992 to attend Western Kentucky University. She then moved about for a while with her husband, Curt, and kids, Morgan and Carson, before relocating back to Bowling Green in 2006. Her professional background includes positions in the marketing and education sectors.
Numerous manufacturers are based there in the twenty-first century, including General Motors, Spalding, and Fruit of the Loom. Since 1981, every Chevrolet Corvette that has been produced has come from the Bowling Green Assembly Plant. The National Corvette Museum and Western Kentucky University are both located in Bowling Green. Warren County Public Schools deliver public education in Bowling Green’s outlying areas, while the Bowling Green Independent School District does so in the city’s core. Bowling Green children are also served by a number of private schools.
The economy of Bowling Green is transitioning to one that is more knowledge- and technology-based. Bowling Green, which has a technical college and one significant public university, acts as the centre of learning for south-central Kentucky. The city also serves as the primary business and medical hub for the area.
Bowling Green is home to numerous significant businesses, including the General Motors Manufacturing Plant, Holley Performance Products, Houchens Industries, SCA, Camping World, Kobe Steel, Minit Mart, Fruit of the Loom, and Russell Brands. The largest employers in Bowling Green and the vicinity are Commonwealth Health Corporation, Western Kentucky University, and Warren County Board of Education.
