COVINGTON — The Providence Classical Christian School in Oxford recently received a $500 grant from local nonprofit LivelikeAlyssa to plant a garden.
The founders for LivelikeAlyssa, Monty and Melanie Hartfield, established the foundation in memory of their daughter, Alyssa Hartfield Wright, after she died in a tragic car crash in 2017.
Alyssa was a special education teacher in Newton and Henry County who loved to inspire and teach her students. The foundation’s website describes the sentiment it was established on, which was the goal of Alyssa’s life, “Being an inspiration to teachers, students and the community.”
This grant will allow Providence's first-grade class to plant a garden in the school’s outdoor classroom.
"We are exceedingly grateful to the Hartfields for their generosity," said Patsy Hinton, headmaster of Providence.
