2014 Keep America Beautiful (KAB) National Conference

The KAB National Conference is an opportunity for affiliates nationwide to gather and share ideas, learn new techniques and gain essential training.  Each year Keep America Beautiful chooses a different city to hold this conference.  The 2014 Keep America Beautiful National Conference was held at the beginning of February in Charlotte, NC.  Due to Charlotte's proximity to Shelby, Keep Shelby Beautiful Coordinator, Jordan Tubbs, was able to attend this year and participated in new executive director training, social media courses and community improvement training.  For more information on the Keep America Beautiful National Conference, click here.                       


Mary Byrnes honored with the

Fred Blackley Keep Shelby Beautiful 2013 Service Award 

Mary has served as staff support to the Shelby Appearance Commission which is now KSB for nearly 15 years. Because of Mary’s hard work and innovation, KSB has become the accomplished and respected organization that it is today.  Mary helped make the organization become more proactive and sought partnerships with Cleveland County, local schools and PTO’s, the Walmart Distribution Center, the Uptown Shelby Association, the Cleveland County Arts Council and local Churches, to ensure real world results.  Volunteers working with KSB have picked up more trash and recyclables than ever before.  Thank you Mary Byrnes for your years of dedication and service to help keep Shelby beautiful.
