Campus, community leaders celebrate collaboration

 Leaders from campus and the Bowling Green community gathered Sept. 19 at the University House on Wintergarden Road to celebrate what they hope will become an annual observance of collaboration.

University President Sidney Ribeau and his wife, Paula, hosted the event where community leaders signed a proclamation recognizing “that our joint efforts contribute to a better quality of life for all.”

While those attending regularly work together on a variety of projects to improve the community and resolve local issues, it is thought to be the first time leaders have met to formally recognize that mutual cooperation and how it benefits the region.

Among those signing the proclamation were Bowling Green City Manager John Fawcett; Elaine Skoog, director of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce; Paul Windisch, president of the Bowling Green Board of Education; Tom Blaha, executive director of the Wood County Economic Development Commission; Sue Clark, executive director of the Bowling Green Community Development Foundation; State Sen. Randy Gardner of the Second Senate District, and State Rep. Bob Latta of the Sixth House District. Ribeau signed on behalf of the University.
