To the Editor: Good schools, communities don't just happen

It just doesn't 'happen' that communities are successful.
And it just doesn't 'happen' that communities stay successful. Great communities are made up of individually successful citizens, schools, organizations, services, and businesses that do the right things at the right time in the right circumstances.
We live in a complex and ever-changing world that requires collaboration and strategic alliances. We are fortunate to have those relationships within the Bowling Green community, as well as our entire county, as there is tremendous strength, clear direction, collaborative effort and visionary leadership to leverage all of our resources to get things done in the most effective and efficient way.
The Bowling Green City School District has been realistic about its constraints and has deliberately developed relationships and implemented strategies to effectively manage the budget while maintaining an excellent educational environment.
Strong school systems are an essential component in our collaborative efforts and the BGCS are a vital and dynamic partner in assuring a positive quality of life now and into the future for our community.
The district has demonstrated a strong commitment to the shared responsibility for understanding and addressing not only the educational needs of our youth today, but in meeting the needs of families and the community at large.
I strongly encourage our community to support the Bowling Green City Schools and vote yes on May 7.
