Nationally-known educator Ron Clark is coming to Covington and PBS will be filming the visit. From Covington Independent Public Schools:
Ron Clark, founder of the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, will be visiting Holmes Middle, Holmes High School and Glenn O. Swing Elementary School on January 30. A crew from PBS will film the visit. Several teachers from Covington schools have attended the Ron Clark Academy Teacher Training, and the district also has a number of "Ron Clark” vividly painted classrooms – which models the classroom and teaching techniques of the Ron Clark Academy.  Ron Clark has been called "America's Educator." In 2000, he was named Disney's American Teacher of the Year. He is a New York Times bestselling author whose book, The Essential 55, has sold over 1 million copies and has been published in 25 different countries. He has been featured on The Today Show, CNN, and Oprah, and Ms. Winfrey even named him as her first "Phenomenal Man." His classes have been honored at the White House on three separate occasions. Ron's teaching experiences in New York City are the subject of the uplifting film, The Ron Clark Story, starring Matthew Perry, better known as Chandler from Friends.
