Builders Club adopts Resource Court
The Builders Club of the Newton County Theme School at Ficquett has adopted the Newton County Resource Court and its participants as a community service project. The Builders Club is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Covington and its faculty sponsor is Ms. Holly Kaas. The Newton County Resource Court is a division of the Superior Court of Newton County and provides supervision and treatment of individuals who have a diagnosed mental illness which has contributed to their committing a criminal offense. The support of The Builders Club will enable the Court to provide greater supervision and treatment in its efforts to enable each participant to live a productive crime-free life in the community. The students plan to serve the court participants and their families at a cookout to be held later this spring. Superior Court Judge Samuel D.
