Two tulip poplar trees were planted near the commemorative bell tower at Covington High School, a gift from the Class of 1968, which held its 50th reunion recently. The gift was spurred by the first line of the alma mater, which mentions "the stately poplars" near the school. An engraved monument was donated by Fieldings’ Monument Co. On hand for the planting are, from left, Debbie Lemons Morris, Larry Pittman, Brenda Myers Willis, Susan Pfeffer Latham, Bruce Cleland, Elizabeth Pfeffer Williams, Kenneth Latham, Carmella DeLucas Comberrall, Carol Wingfield Meyers, Donald White and Tom Davis.
