During the past year, we lost one of our community’s biggest advocates in Pierce Cline.

One of the organizations he truly believed in and supported was Georgia Perimeter College, as Cline played an instrumental role in bringing the community college to Newton County.

In honor of that longstanding support, the college is dedicating its annual Daffodil Festival in honor of Cline’s memory.

This year’s festival will be held March 20–21 at the college and will offer free programs honoring his legacy.

Assisting the college will be the Covington-Newton County Chamber of Commerce and The Center for Community Preservation and Planning.

The college will also offer special trail walks and other entertainment.

We salute the college’s leadership for honoring Pierce Cline in such a manner.
