Campbell Library Board of Trustees Adds New Trustee
The Campbell County Public Library Board of Trustees added a new member earlier this month.
Kelley Raleigh’s term as Trustee begins Friday, October 1.
Additionally, Board Treasurer Jonathan Cullick was selected for a full term after joining the Board to fill the time remaining in her post when Carla Landon stepped down.
Cullick’s full term also begins on October 1.
Both terms expire on September 30, 2025.
“Kelley brings decades of leadership experience in the corporate sector to her role as a director,” said Library Director JC Morgan. “His skills and insight will be a great addition to our board of directors. “
Raleigh, of Cold Spring, holds a Masters of Business Administration in Marketing and a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry from the University of Tennessee. She has held leadership positions at companies across the United States including PepsiCo, Dannon Yogurt, Samsung and currently Zeitgeist Research.
Raleigh said his background gives him a “wide range of transferable skills to help market and grow the user base (library).”
“A public library is an investment in the future of the community it serves,” said Raleigh, adding that libraries can function as sources of inspiration, education and connectivity for the community.
Professor of English at Northern Kentucky University, Jonathan Cullick resides in Bellevue. He has worked in 28 middle and high schools in the region and has been teaching at NKU since 2001.
The current board also includes Tracy Smith, president; Jessica Schweitzer, vice-president; and Maggie Brown, secretary. Former vice-president Christie Fillhardt has stepped down from the board.
“Christie’s departure comes at the end of her second four-year term. During this time, she has proven not only her passion for the library, but also for the communities we serve, ”said Morgan. “She was an integral part of the board of directors and will be missed, but her legacy will surely live on.”
The board meets at 5:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month. All council meetings are open to the public.
