        COVINGTON — The Northern Kentucky chapter of the NAACP and the Covington Independent School District are creating partnerships at three schools.

        Monday, representatives of the Covington office of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the district toured Two Rivers Middle School, Latonia Elementary and Holmes High School.

        Local NAACP President Jerome Bowles said working with the district has been a goal since the Northern Kentucky chapter reactivated two years ago.

        “We submitted a diversity plan about a year ago,”he said. “We were very impressed with the direction the district is moving.”

        Mr. Bowles said his organization would like to form a junior NAACP chapter at Holmes and be involved in the mentoring program at Latonia and the advisory committee at Two Rivers.
