Mark Thursday, June 30, 2022, on your calendars for a community celebration of a new era in public education for the Alleghany Highlands.
The celebration will be held at the Jackson River Sport Complex in Covington from 7:30 to 9:15 p.m. to usher in the birth of Alleghany Highlands Public Schools on July 1. Alleghany Highlands Public Schools will be created on July 1, 2022, through the merger of Alleghany County Public Schools, Covington City Public Schools, and Jackson River Technical Center.
The evening, which will be free of charge, will include music, one free trip to the concession stand, and a time capsule. Members of the community will be invited to sign their names on an item that will be placed in the time capsule. The celebration will culminate with a fireworks display.
