Jim and the whole Cutter Construction team believe that it is our responsibility to give back to our community in a variety of ways. Over the years, this has led to our sponsorship of many youth sports teams, particularly. We are also well-known for the importance we place on being involved in local schools and nonprofits. We know that building our customers’ dreams means building a strong community in which we all live, work, and play.
Many young people, some now adults, have sported the Cutter logo through the years. Cutter Construction is or was the proud sponsor of the Cutter Hoopsters, a girls’ basketball team, and the Cutter Construction Redlegs, a boys’ baseball team.
Additionally, we have been honored to support Newport High School, Jim’s alma mater, as well as Newport Central Catholic High School, where Jim’s children attended school, in various leadership roles. Beyond schools and some local churches, we have donated time, resources, or our talents to these fine nonprofits and community organizations.
Cutter Construction, Southern Ohio’s Make-a-Wish Foundation 2005 Vendor of the Year, is proud to support the mission of the Foundation. In 2005, Jim received a letter requesting support from the Foundation and subsequently decided to sponsor a project to fulfill a 16-year-old boy’s wish for a bedroom makeover.
We donated in-kind services and solicited our own vendors to contribute items to make this fantastic wish a reality. Jim and our team transformed the family’s basement into a dream room for the young man. Read more about this project by reading the related blog post.
The national Kids Voting organization strives to educate and engage young people on the importance of democracy and involved citizenship. For the past nearly six years, Jim has served as the president of Kids Voting Northern Kentucky dba Kids Voting Kentucky. Apart from youth empowerment through team sports, Jim has given extensively of his time to this organization since it supports his belief that youth empowerment is critical across all aspects of life.
