Now that football sea­son is here, New­ton County School Sys­tem is re­sum­ing the pop­u­lar Homer Sharp Sta­dium Brick Pro­gram to ben­e­fit the New­ton County Foun­da­tion for Ed­u­ca­tional Ex­cel­lence and the three high school ath­letic pro­grams.

Homer Sharp Sta­dium is one the community’s most well-known land­marks. Since its con­struc­tion in 1956, New­ton County’s high school ath­letes and the fans who cheered them on have made un­for­get­table mem­o­ries at Homer Sharp Sta­dium — mem­o­ries that re­flect the dis­trict’s tradition of Spirit, Pride and Ex­cel­lence.

Res­i­dents have a unique op­por­tu­nity not only to be a per­ma­nent part of that his­tory but also to sup­port both the high school ath­letic pro­grams and the New­ton County Foun­da­tion for Ed­u­ca­tional Ex­cel­lence at the same time by pur­chas­ing a paver brick. In recog­ni­tion of a gift of $30, New­ton County Schools will en­grave your 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 the Homer Sharp Sta­dium and 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. Due to the pop­u­lar- ity of the pro­gram, there is only space for 47 more paver bricks.

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 would make a fit­ting gift to a high school sports en­thu­si­ast or memo­rial for a loved one who has passed away.

The brick pavers cost $30 and the do­na­tion is tax de­ductible. Pavers are 4”x8” and may hold up to three lines of text with 14 char­ac­ters per­mit­ted per line. All text will be 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. Please note that the New­ton County School Sys­tem 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. Or­der forms may be down­loaded from the New­ton County School Sys­tem web­site at new­ton­coun­tyschools.org and mailed to the ad­dress be­low: New­ton County School Sys­tem Homer Sharp Sta­dium Brick Pro­gram At­ten­tion: Ms. Sherri Davis-Viniard P.O. Box 1469 Cov­ing­ton, GA 30015
