Bees are a crucial part of our ecosystem; many don’t know that bees pollinate nearly three-quarters of the plants that produce 90% of the world’s food. As a fourth-generation beekeeper, I have seen firsthand the impact these creatures have on the planet. While attending college at North Carolina State University, my passion for bees drove me to create my business, or “beesness”as we like to call it, called Bee Downtown.
Passionate about preservation. Stuck on sustainability. A “walking encyclopedia” of green living options. That’s how coworkers describe Kim Bowman-Scott, who earned Cox Enterprises’ highest honor for employees for finding a way to save bee hives that threaten our employees and cable equipment in the field.
