About Ms. Margaret Fowler Covington:

The Margaret Fowler Covington Award has been established by C. Kenneth and Debbie Covington in honor of her love and devotion as a mother to C. Kenneth and Michael Covington. As a single mother, Margaret Fowler Covington raised two boys while working as an educator in the Bossier Parish School system where she taught for many years.
