Gutknecht: Visions is on its way

As the month of April comes into full swing, the staff of The Covington News is hard at work to produce one of the biggest and best magazine publications in Newton County. This year’s Visions magazine will be one for the record books, I can promise you that.

One of the biggest things The News prides itself in is providing full coverage of Newton County and this progress edition allows us to do just that. 

With the theme of “One Newton,” this year’s magazine will feature content from around the county of how our leaders are working together. 

As we did in last year’s first-ever Visions magazine, we are looking forward to recognizing some of Newton County’s shining stars in this publication as well. 

If you recall, earlier in the year I asked for your nominations for some of our annual awards: Community Spirit Award, Employer of the Year Award, Unsung Heroes and Youth of the Year. Well, the selections have been made and I think this year’s award winners are the perfect representation of not only what One Newton stands for, but the amazing people that live and support this community. 

The 60-page magazine is also filled with stories of success and service. Whether it is a high school student who has gone beyond the classroom or a local organization that is going above the call of duty to give back, we have dug up some stories that will make you proud to be a part of this community. 

Make sure to mark your calendar for April 28 – that’s two weeks away – to get your hands on this year’s Visions magazine. You won’t want to miss this.
