You may see Flora and her staff along with Poppy and Pixie at community events across South Central Kentucky. Making a difference in the lives of others is the cornerstone of her practice. As a former teacher, Ms. Stuart founded Poppy Field Trip, Band Together BG, and BgOnstage recognizing students, teachers, and actors for service and leadership. She travels to schools all over our region often delivering school supplies. Band Together BG Inc. (501c founded by Flora) has raised over $170k for local charities.
BgOnStage was founded a decade ago by Ms. Stuart bringing youth theater arts to SKyPAC when it merged in 2019. Ms. Stuart was proud to serve as president of the BGNoon Lions Club to fundraise for charities. Her law firm is a major sponsor for Toys For Tots, BG Kiwanis, Kids On The Block, Jonesville Academy, Concerts in the Park, and the International Center where she serves on the board.
Flora created Poppy’s Field Trip nearly 15 years ago to recognize the schools and programs in our community that have gone above and beyond for their students. Since then, Flora, Poppy, and WBKO news crew have visited over 150 schools to present Poppy’s Star of Excellence Award.
Winning schools are featured on WBKO and entered into a drawing for the $1,000 Grand Prize to be chosen at the end of the school year. Sign your school up to enter for Poppy’s Field Trip at https://www.wbko.com/page/poppys-field-trip/
