Mr Covington was my science & PE teacher at Harmony from 69 til 71. There was no one else that inspired us more and encouraged us to to our best more than Mr Covington. He was the first person that I ever heard speak with a southern accent. I can hear his voice as I write this. His sayings, whether to encourage us or to discipline us with his humor were memorable. Yes I probably "sat on the wall" a few times. I still remember all of the football plays we ran while he coached us during our games against other schools. He was also a great sport when we played pranks on him. Yes, I was one in the group of the boys that would occasionally pick up the front of his VW Bug and put the front tires down straddling the telephone pole barrier. He may be gone but will never be forgotten.
