COVINGTON, Ky. - Tuesday marks the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, but it also represents the dedication of the Covington Latin School building.
To commemorate the day, the school dedicated a new addition to its current building Tuesday afternoon with a formal ceremony.
Many Covington leaders came out for the event including the Bishop of Diocese Covington, Bishop Roger Foys.
"It tied us to the past, it was a recognition of where we came from, as it says on our shirts where the past meets the future, and so bringing along that dedication on that day, that momentous event for our country on that day and to bring that here in a very real way and a very vivid way for our kids it means a lot," said Andrew Barczak, Headmaster of Covington Latin School.
Following the event, students and staff unveiled a statue of General Leonard W. Covington, a hero in the War of 1812.
