At Renaissance Covington, we’re proud to work with such dedicated and active Board members who are business owners, residents and advocates for urban Covington. This year, we’re honored to welcome four new members to our board (bringing our board total up to 16 strong!)

Why I Love the Cov: I love the energy of the Covington community: from the local restaurants and shops, to the events and festivals, to the unique neighborhoods. I’ve loved being a part of Covington’s growth over the past 2+ years that I’ve lived here, and I’m excited to continue helping that growth with Renaissance Covington!

Why I Love the Cov: What excites me: As a returning board member, I am excited to see the progress Renaissance Covington has made since 2013, as reflected in winning the National Main Street award in 2017. What continues to draw me to RCOV is the opportunity to make Covington even more vibrant through efforts such as creative placemaking and space activation.

Why I Love the Cov: #CovLov to me is small town, big city, beautiful gems with rough edges; it’s urban Kentucky at its truest, and I’m excited for the opportunity to participate with my city in a new way.
