Kentucky Farm Bureau
In his nomination of Mika Tyler, 37, of Elizabethtown, her husband Matthew not only listed what she does as an insurance agent with Kentucky Farm Bureau, he also listed many things she does in the community.
She has been president or the Panther Academy PTA, board member of the Elizabethtown Independent Schools ED Foundation, board member of Foster Care Review, Heels Together volunteer, board member of CASA of the Heartland, committee chairperson for the St. James Catholic picnic and is a Junior Achievement volunteer, to name a few, Matthew said.
“I am amazed at the amount of work she puts in for the community,” he said.
She’s also a mom to Eva and Jack.
“She juggles being a great mother, daughter and wife, constantly running from work to board meetings and soccer practice,” he said, all without missing a thing.
“I do what I do because of the people,” Tyler said. “Knowing that I have the ability to help people in a time of need is what keeps me going.”
Giving back, she said, is important.
“Living in a community and having a career that allows me to have the opportunity to be involved in many community organizations and events is such a blessing and is a key part of who I am,” she said.
She returned to Elizabethtown after college to be a part of a great community, she said.
Giving back also helps her see the positives of life.
“While we have so much negativity in the world, becoming involved in your community is a small way to make a difference in the place that you live and raise your children, and also has the ability to make a positive impact on others,” she said.
