A familiar face to most Hardin Countians, Kendra Stewart Scott, soon will begin a new leadership position with the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce.
Scott will join the chamber Oct. 1 as its vice president of operations, according to an announcement by HCCC President and CEO Brad Richardson. He said it’s a new position at HCCC.
Her primary responsibilities will be event and program management, Richardson said.
“The Hardin County Chamber is one of the first places that jump-started my career, and I’m blessed to be able to serve in this role to help the community I love continue to thrive and prosper,” Scott said in a statement released by the chamber. “Business and industry is the backbone of the region and I’m looking forward to helping support our business community and the workforce that drives it.”
Scott has worked in broadcasting, banking, the non-profit sector and health care. For the past 16 years, she has been the public relations liaison for Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System. She is also a Realtor with ReMax Executive Group-The Janet Team.
Scott has devoted her time to a variety of organizations, including United Way of Central Kentucky, Hosparus, Habitat for Humanity, Rotary, Hooray for Heroes and SpringHaven domestic violence shelter. She is also an appointed member of the Lincoln Trail Area Development District Board of Directors and the Elizabethtown Planning Commission.
Richardson noted the positive impact he expects Scott to have with chamber members and the community.
“Kendra’s knowledge of our chamber operations as an active ambassador and council member, her previous voluntary roles with the Radcliff Chamber of Commerce, her leadership in numerous community initiatives for many years, her enthusiasm and track record of success will be instrumental in assuring the chamber continues to move in a positive direction,” he said.
