Enquirer Column: Skyward getting things done in NKY

Skyward President William Scheyer wrote a guest column for the Cincinnati Enquirer on Dec. 19:

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” When I reflect on those words from Henry Ford, I think about all the volunteers in Northern Kentucky who have accomplished so much for our community in the past 12 months.

Northern Kentucky has a long and prosperous history of being supported by community members and business leaders who are driven to go above and beyond for the greater good. We are a community of individuals and organizations who are passionate about making our region a better place. Most importantly, we are constantly striving not only for our own success, but also for the community as a whole.

At Skyward, volunteers were not only instrumental in our efforts to develop the myNKY strategic plan, they are also a crucial part of its implementation. Our board, staff and thousands of individuals volunteered their time and ideas to create the myNKY strategic plan, as well as guiding the formation of Skyward: a new organization with new leadership, a new name and new brand to drive the community’s agenda forward.

On top of all of this, just six months after the launch of myNKY, these individuals are helping to bring the myNKY plan quickly to life with the launch of programs like Transit Friendly Destinations, the Pre-K Works pilot in the Erlanger-Elsmere Independent School District and LiveWell NKY. I am inspired by their dedication to the region and its future.
