Jan Oglesby Joins City as Marketing and Events Coordinator


Hopkinsville, KY - Hopkinsville native Jan Oglesby has been hired as the new Marketing and Events Coordinator for the City of Hopkinsville. Oglesby, a Christian County High School graduate, has been a marketing and events specialist for a variety of firms over her career. She returns to Hopkinsville within the Division of Parks and Recreation to concentrate primarily on programming and marketing for the Hopkinsville Sportsplex.

Oglesby received her bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and advertising from Murray State University. While at MSU, she was a news anchor for MSU TV-11, co-hosted the Racer sports show “Hoofbeats,” and was a writer for The Shield yearbook. She graduated with honors and was named Outstanding Senior in Radio-TV Journalism. After graduation, she worked for WHOP and TV-43.

Oglesby has over 25 years of experience in client management, marketing, public relations, and events. She has a proven track record of creating and delivering successful strategic, integrated initiatives in multiple industries including finance, healthcare, corporate law, forensic engineering, and private aviation. Since returning to Hopkinsville from Florida last year, Oglesby has worked remotely as a freelance marketer and graphic designer for clients in three different states.

“We are delighted to welcome Jan Oglesby to Team Hopkinsville. Her knowledge and wealth of experience will make her an invaluable member of our staff,” said Hopkinsville Mayor Wendell Lynch.

“I’m thrilled that my journey has brought me back home and that I can use my years of experience to contribute to the award-winning team at the Parks and Recreation Department,” said Oglesby. “I’m excited to be a part of all Hopkinsville and Christian County have to offer and to help make our events enjoyable, accessible, and memorable.”

Oglesby’s first order of business will be assisting with preparations for Hopkinsville’s upcoming 6th Annual Summer Salute Festival in August. Social media engagement, website and sponsorship development, and event planning will be her key focuses for the Planters Bank-Jennie Stuart Health Sportsplex and the multitude of additional Parks and Recreation Department events and activities.

“Jan brings our team an extensive and successful background with marketing, sales, social media, and events, as well as website development and graphic design. And, as a Hopkinsville native she already has a great network of local contacts that will help her get a fast start,” added Parks and Recreation Superintendent Tab Brockman. “We are very happy Jan has come home and to have her as part of our Parks and Rec team.”
