Covington Community Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of the V. Edward & Diana (Johnson) Grogg Unrestricted Fund. Ed and Diana, of Carmel, IN, are 1978 graduates of Covington High School and Attica High School, respectively. They both earned their college degrees from Indiana University. The Grogg’s desire to “give-back” to the Covington community as a result of V. Edward’s positive childhood and youth experiences in the Covington community and through his education and extra-curricular activities in the Covington Community School Corporation. “As a youth I didn’t realize how fortunate I was to come from such a close-knit, small town community. After living in a few other communities I came to realize how blessed I was. It’s time to give-back and make a difference in my hometown.” Ed stated.
The Grogg’s are especially interested in supporting innovative and creative problem-solving projects that have the potential to make significant long-term impact in the Covington community. The projects may be in a wide-variety of areas, including, but not limited to: education, health & wellness, economic improvement, community leadership development, park & recreation ventures, child & youth activities, senior citizen endeavors, school-based initiatives, visitors & tourism promotion, and others.
