COVINGTON --Residents still can be a part of Sharp Stadium history.

The Newton County School System announced this week that it still has spaces for 47 brick pavers as part of its Homer Sharp Stadium Brick Program to benefit the Newton County Foundation for Educational Excellence and the three high school athletic programs. The program began in 2009.

In recognition of a $30 gift, Newton County Schools will engrave a message on a paver brick, which will become a permanent part of the Homer Sharp Stadium interior landscape.

The engraved paver bricks will be located on a raised concrete area inside Sharp Stadium.

The school system will donate all proceeds from the sale of these bricks to the Newton County Foundation for Educational Excellence and the athletic programs of Alcovy, Eastside and Newton high schools.

The brick paver is tax deductible.

By purchasing a paver, residents can commemorate and pay tribute to a favorite former or current high school athlete, student or educator or honor a special relative, friend, business or organization. Pavers also could be gift to a high school sports enthusiast or memorial for a loved one who has passed away, according to recommendations by NCSS.

Pavers are 4 inches by 8 inches and may hold up to three lines of text with 14 characters permitted per line. All text is standard size, font and style.

Greek letters and other symbols not found on a standard keyboard may not be used. Messages will be centered automatically in uppercase letters.

NCSS reserves the right to approve all text prior to production.

Pavers may be purchased with cash, check or money order at the Newton County Board of Education, which is located at 2109 Newton Drive NE in Covington.

Order forms also may be downloaded from the NCSS website, www.newtoncountyschools.org, and mailed to Newton County School System, Homer Sharp Stadium Brick Program, Attention: Ms. Sherri Davis-Viniard, Director of Public Relations, P.O. Box 1469, Covington, GA 30015. Cash is not accepted for mail orders.
