President George H.W. Bush was a kind, compassionate and humble man; a leader who believed in service for the betterment of society. As he aptly put it, 'any definition of a successful life must include service to others.' The call to serve your country and your fellow man – both of equal value – was a centerpiece of his presidency and his life. It was from the White House that he founded Points of Light, which has evolved into the largest nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting the power of individuals to create change. Today because of his work, Points of Light is an enduring part of his legacy.
President Bush also recognized the difference individuals can make in their community and established the Daily Point of Light Award to lift up those who translate common interests into a common cause. It was because of this belief he personally signed each recipient’s certificate up until his passing.
Morgan is proud to be a Point if Light and to have one of those certificates signed by our former President. We are grateful for his service and commitment to encouraging others to make a positive difference in our world. ... See MoreSee Less
We are grateful to Paducah Drone for helping us spread the kindness message. #BeFearlessBeKind #bekindpaducah #guessantibullyingThe Paducah Bank Teen Ambassadors unveiled a Kindness Mural on Tuesday, November 13, in celebration of World Kindness Day at Make Paducah (628 Broadway in Paducah).
Thirty-three teens, representing seven high schools, worked with Make owner and artist Kijsa Housman and Paducah Bank Marketing Director Susan Guess over several months to design and paint the mural. Each student created an icon from a memory about giving or receiving an act of kindness. Each icon is featured on the mural and was painted by the student who designed it.
The mural is a second-generation kindness gift. The first mural was created three years ago by the Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation founders Susan and Morgan Guess, in partnership with Housman.
The trio say they are excited to see the kindness movement grow. Several elements of the original mural remain in tact, inlacing the butterfly. Morgan, a sophomore at McCracken County High School, is part of this mural as one of the Paducah Bank Teen Ambassadors. "What makes this project so special is that it is a joint project between students from five counties, an artist, and a bank," said Morgan. "This mural is about the best of all of us and we hope it inspires every citizen to focus on creating kinder schools and communities."
