Congressman, Mayor Join Fidelity Employees to Make Improvements at Holmes

Two hundred employees from Fidelity Investments joined Congressman Thomas Massie and Covington Mayor Sherry Carran to make improvements at Holmes Middle School on Friday and Saturday. 

The volunteers painted stairwells and hallways, and worked on inspirational murals throughout the building. Other work included a student achievement wall and bulletin board in the cafeteria, the assmebly of 800 school supply kits with personalized notes, the improvement of outdoor spaces with landscaping, and the creation of college corners throughout the school to reinforce college readiness and to establish a welcoming space for students.

One of the volunteers was sophomore Adrian Hall, who has been volunteering with the Fidelity efforts since he was in sixth grade.

Massie was joined by his son and said it was good to work on a project where you can see the work finished, which doesn't happen in Washington, DC very often.
 
This is the fifth year that Fidelity has worked at Holmes Middle School for "Transformation Day".
