Culpeper Renaissance names executive director Culpeper Renaissance, Inc. (CRI)’s Board of Directors announced the appointment of Jessica Jenkins as Executive Director effective April 13. Jenkins comes from her former position of Program Manager of CRI. She brings more than a decade of experience with the Main Street Program, background in the nonprofit sector, and grant and project management. She has extensive knowledge in the National Main Street Center's successful Four Point Approach for downtown revitalization. “I am elated about the opportunity to continue working with this wonderful volunteer-led organization in this capacity,” states Jenkins. “2017 promises to be a year filled with community improvements projects, and partnership opportunities. I am eager to continue working with our incredible staff, volunteers, and partners who help us achieve our mission and goals. Culpeper Renaissance, Inc. plays a key role in improving our community and I look forward to continuing the good work this organization does for Culpeper.” “Jessica has earned this job the old fashioned way, it’s been a real pleasure to watch her work and grow into the Executive Director position, she grabs every challenge and digs for the solution that best benefits Culpeper and all that live and work here. Much of the growth and success that CRI has realized the last several years would not have come to fruition without the leadership of Mrs. Jenkins,” said CRI Board President Steve Miller.

Give Local Piedmont is May 2 The fourth annual Give Local Piedmont event is next week on Tuesday, May 2 covering a four-county area. The first three years of Give Local Piedmont were smash hits, raising just over $2 million collectively for area nonprofits while increasing awareness for these organizations to much higher levels. This year’s event— running from midnight to 11:59 p.m. on May 2—includes 152 nonprofits participating for the first time. Having raised $157,514 more in 2016 than in 2015, it is apparent that Northern Piedmont citizens believe in this day of online community giving and are committed to its success.
