Holmes Middle School receives a makeover

Students and teachers of Holmes Middle School in Covington receive a makeover, thanks to more then 250 Fidelity Investments employees.

Students, teachers and citizens of Covington can all take advantage of the brand new amphitheater, complete with a stage and seating for 75 people.

Just in time for the new school year, this back-to-school makeover includes landscaping, painted staff meeting rooms, a newly painted gymnasium and inspirational bulletin boards.

Volunteers from Fidelity Investments will also paint murals and rooms at the nearby Chapman Child Development Center. Chalkboards, bulletin boards, picnic tables and raised plant boxes are also being built.

This event marks year three of Fidelity's partnership with Holmes Middle School, and strongly demonstrates Fidelity's culture of empowering employees to utilize their passion and talents to help others and enhance their surrounding community.

This "School Transformation Day" represents one of 12 Fidelity-led events taking place across the United States through this September.
