Covington Partners Reaches 15 Years of Programming

Covington, Kentucky – July 16, 2014 This fall marks the 15th year of Covington based non-profit, Covington Partners,  an organization who partners with Covington Independent School District to reduce barriers to student achievement. To celebrate, Covington Partners will host a birthday party luncheon on Friday, August 15th from 11:30am – 1:30pm at the Madison Event Center in Covington, KY.


The birthday party is being co-hosted by Brent Cooper of C-Forward, a fellow Covington business celebrating its 15th year, and Dr. Ed Hughes from Gateway Community and Technical College. Started in 1999 to reduce drug abuse and violence among Covington youth, Covington Partners has since expanded offerings to include a variety of mentoring, family strengthening, and physical/mental health programs. Every aspect of Covington Partner’s work is focused solely on supporting the children of Covington.


“For 15 years Covington Partners has worked every day to keep the community moving forward by eliminating boundaries to learning and success, said Stacie Strotman, Executive Director, Covington Partners. “We have seen tremendous student success as a direct impact from our programming. However, the work is not complete.  Through innovation and collaboration we will continue to create safe and engaging environments for students and families to learn and grow for many more years to come.”


In true birthday party fashion, local Covington businesses are being asked to purchase birthday candles on the Covington Partners birthday cake, as a way to support and sustain Covington Partners programming. Birthday Candles are still available, as well as, spots to attend the free luncheon.
