Spiritual Life Director
Reflecting on her own life challenges and struggles as a youth growing up, Covington has always had a desire to impact and change the lives of all underserved, socio-economic, disadvantaged (at-risk) youth in her community that lack meaningful academic, emotional & spiritual growth, economic literacy, career guidance, and social skills needed to become productive, worthwhile members of society.
Determined to make a difference, she aspires to forge collaborative partnerships with youth/families, civic organizations, government agencies, foundations, and corporations.
Covington truly believes that it does “Take a village to raise a child.”
