Since 2001, Renee has been the producing force behind KET’s legislative coverage that has been recognized by the Kentucky Associated Press and the National Educational Telecommunications Association. Under her leadership, KET has expanded its portfolio of public affairs content to include a daily news and information program, Kentucky Supreme Court coverage, townhall-style forums, and multi-platform program initiatives around issues such as opioid addiction and youth mental health.  

Renee has also earned top awards from the Ohio Valley Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), with three regional Emmy awards. In 2023, she was inducted into the Silver Circle of the NATAS, one of the industry’s highest honors recognizing television professionals with distinguished service in broadcast journalism for 25 years or more.  

Already an inductee into the Kentucky Civil Rights Hall of Fame (2017), Renee expands her hall of fame status with induction into Western Kentucky University’s Hall of Distinguished Alumni in November of 2023.  

In February of 2023, Renee graced the front cover of Kentucky Living magazine with a centerfold story on her 25 years of service at KET and even longer commitment to public media journalism. 

In addition to honors from various educational, civic, and community organizations, Renee has earned top honors from the Associated Press and has twice been recognized by Mental Health America for her years-long dedication to examining issues of mental health and opioid addiction.  

In 2022, she was honored with Women Leading Kentucky’s Governor Martha Layne Collins Leadership Award recognizing her trailblazing path and inspiring dedication to elevating important issues across Kentucky.   

In 2018, she co-produced and moderated a 6-part series on youth mental health that was awarded first place in educational content by NETA, the National Educational Telecommunications Association. 

She has been honored by the AKA Beta Gamma Omega Chapter with a Coretta Scott King Spirit of Ivy Award; earned the state media award from the Kentucky Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution in 2019; named a Charles W. Anderson Laureate by the Kentucky Personnel Cabinet in 2019 honoring her significant contributions in addressing socio-economic issues; and was recognized as a “Kentucky Trailblazer” by the University of Kentucky Martin School of Public Policy and Administration during the Wendell H.

Two Kentucky governors, Republican Ernie Fletcher and Democrat Andy Beshear, have commissioned Renee as a Kentucky Colonel for noteworthy accomplishments and service to community, state, and nation.  

A former adjunct media writing professor at Georgetown College, Renee traveled to Cambodia in 2003 to help train emerging journalists on reporting on critical health issues as part of an exchange program at Western Kentucky University. And, she has enterprised stories for national media outlets, the PBS NewsHour and Public News Service.

Retired Executive Discusses His New Book on Leadership and Service

Of all the books on management and leadership ever written, it would be hard to find one that boils down to a message as simple, plain-spoken, and heartfelt as the one offered by Nick Rowe: Just be a good person.

That’s hardly the mantra you’d expect from someone with decades of executive experience, including serving as president of Kentucky American Water in Lexington and as board chair of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. But Rowe says his success didn’t come by serving his own interests to climb the corporate ladder. Instead, he says it came from focusing on being a good husband, father, friend, co-worker, neighbor, and citizen.

“Did we make the community that we all lived in a little bit better? That’s your measuring stick,” says Rowe.

From Segregated Schools to the Executive Suite

Growing up in Bowling Green, Rowe attended the segregated school for Black children across town from his home. He says he once asked his parents why he had to travel so far when other children got to go to a school in their own neighborhood. Their response was simply that the segregated school was excellent.

“They didn’t want to put in my mind or thoughts that I was any less than anyone else,” he says.

As Rowe entered third grade, the local schools integrated. He says that’s when he began to realize his skin was a different color and that his classmates treated him differently because of it. That was the genesis of another valuable life lesson for Rowe: If 99.9 percent of our DNA is the same, why focus on the .1 percent that’s unique?

“Think about where we’d be in America if people in this world would say, ‘We’re all pretty close to each other and we’re not that much different,’” Rowe says.

As a student, Rowe excelled at math and went on to become the first Black valedictorian of Bowling Green High School. That led him to a civil engineering degree at Western Kentucky University.

On one of his first jobs, Rowe worked on railroads in eastern Kentucky. He said he realized that if he went into meetings with a chip on his shoulder, his colleagues would not act favorably. So he decided to do less talking and more listening.

“I learned to just humble myself,” he says. “Those folks really treated me well and I never had any problems.”

Rowe started with American Water in 1981, rising to become a senior vice president of the utility and president of its Kentucky operations. Along the way, he married his childhood sweetheart and made lifelong friends. He also worked for 10 different CEOs, but he says he never forgot that God was his ultimate boss.

“For me it was faith, family, career, and that was my order,” he says.

At every step of the way, Rowe says he worked to be a good person and good servant-leader by living the simple values his parents taught him. He says his work was never about the job title, but about motivating his employees to deliver results.

“You have to inspire people,” he says. “People have to want to work for you.”

He says it’s up to people to create their own work-life balance. For him, that meant being devoted to his wife and two daughters as well as being active in his church and community. When an outside commitment did pull him away from work, he says he always explained to his staff where he was and what he was doing.

“After almost 40 years in corporate America, I sleep good every night,” says Row. “Was I right all the time? No. Did I make mistakes? Absolutely. Am I imperfect? Absolutely, but I feel pretty good about where I’m at.”

Chronicling a Life Well Lived

Rowe retired from American Water in July 2022. After some travelling with his wife, he decided to compile his life and business experiences in a book called The Goodwill Jar: Reflections on Leadership and Legacy, which came out this month. The title refers to a jar his family maintains in their kitchen into which they place little notes detailing each other’s good deeds and accomplishments. He says simple acts of performing and acknowledging an act of kindness are as important as ever.

“Right now, where we are in this world, we need some goodwill,” he says.

The book includes Rowe’s reflections on building relationships, disarming others with love, advocating for yourself, the dangers of complacency, making hard calls, and being a servant leader. He says he often asks the executives he coaches if anyone at work or in their community is saying their name in a good light. Do they recall that person being kind, generous, and a positive role model? Rowe says if people aren’t saying your name, then too much of your life is about you and not enough about giving to others.

“There’s so many takers in the world today: take, take, take, take, take,” he says. “It really is about being a giver.”

Rowe says people will believe in the person that you are, not the title you may hold. He contends such fundamental lessons have an important place in the modern economy, with the new realities of remote work, frequent job changes, and new generations shaping workplace culture. He says people of his generation would never have dreamed of asking for some of the benefits that young people today want from their employers, yet he argues that each new generation is better than the last.

“What gives me hope in a challenging time in America... is that there’s still more good people in this world than bad people,” says Rowe.
