Members of the Covington Area Employers Committee recently held a back-to-school, school supply drive with the proceeds earmarked for Middle Ridge Elementary School students. Committee members delivered the much-needed supplies stuffed in book bags, to Middle Ridge on Friday, August 15.

The Covington Area Employers Committee includes representatives from Future Staff, Express Pro, Apollo Staffing, Bridgestone Golf, Fiber Visions, Michelin and more.

“Part of our efforts as the employer committee in this area is to build our future workforce and to make sure they have the tools they need to succeed,” Margie Ensley, CSP of Future Staff, explained.

“This is the third year the Employers Committee has done this for us,” added Dr. Michael Forehand, principal of Middle Ridge Elementary School. “It’s a great partnership. We know our students will grow up and become workers in the workforce. Everything the Employers are providing for us is helping our parents, some of whom do not have the means to provide school supplies for their boys and girls. We’re just thankful they are able to provide that for us. They are a wonderful partner in education.”
