Nurture Founder Kathryn Guylay Selected as Health Hero


Kathryn Guylay (at right in the photo, shown with Assistant Head of Community School Ben Pettit and Community School teacher Sara Pettit) was selected as a Health Hero for Public Health District 5 (South Central Idaho).  Kathryn was chosen because of her incredible volunteer efforts to start a Nurture chapter in South Central Idaho after relocating to the Wood River Valley in 2011.  Since that time, her volunteer leadership has launched an organization (“Nurture Idaho”) that has expanded from two grades at the Community School to grades K-7 at the Community School and programs in each of the four public elementary schools located within the Wood River Valley (Bellevue, Hailey, Hemingway, and Woodside).


Plans for the future?  This summer, Nurture Idaho has added a new collaborative partner (adding to the organizations Nurture currently collaborates with, including The Hunger Coalition, Girls on the Run, St. Luke’s Center for Community Health, and the Wood River YMCA):   Higher Ground.  Read more about this exciting summer camp in our post, Nurture and Higher Ground Collaborate on Summer Camp Program.
