I have to say, I’m disappointed in this headline and its negativity. As a member of the community, president of the local bank, athletic booster, volunteer coach and parent, Bill Covington made numerous contributions to Eminence Independent Schools, the City of Eminence and Henry County. I think it speaks volumes for his character that he wants to come back to Eminence and make additional contributions to the school, the students and the future of our community, all the while knowing that there will be some people who just can’t move on.
Remember, not everyone that is found ‘innocent’ is and not everyone who is found ‘guilty’ actually is. I applaud Steve Frommeyer, the Site Based Council and the Eminence School District for their decision to hire Bill Covington.
