Kelly Kemp-McLintock, CFRE
Chief Advancement Officer, The Jones Center/Jones Trust
1. Who is your biggest inspiration:
Philanthropist Bernice Jones. In her 80s, she had the vision to gift The Jones Center to Northwest Arkansas. Twenty-five years later, the Center is still a popular destination and an important quality of life amenity in the region.
2. Best part of your job:
Building long-lasting relationships. I enjoy working with our donors and corporate supporters. I have met so many wonderful people in my 15 years at The Jones Center.
3. Surprising fact about you:
In my previous career, I was a television news anchor and produced a local cooking show that aired for 10 years. Many people might get a kick out of this, but I don’t cook. My husband, Ben, is a wonderful cook and prepares most of our meals from scratch.
