Attorney Garry Edmondson to be honored by Covington Education Foundation as "Person of Year"

Garry Edmondson

Holmes High School graduate Garry Edmondson will be honored by the Covington Education Foundation as its 2018 “Person of the Year.”

The foundation raises funds and awards college scholarships to students at Holmes High School. It also provides program support for Covington Independent Public Schools.??

“It is wonderful and surprising that somebody would remember me,’’ said Edmondson, who served as Kenton County Attorney for 21 years.

“I was a kid from inner-city Covington and the product of good teachers and a great school system. I got a great education at Holmes. There’s no doubt about that.”

??Edmondson will be recognized at the foundation’s Hall of Honors celebration on Wednesday, October 10 at The Drees Pavilion from 6 to 9 p.m.

For tickets, please contact Janice Krumwiede at 859-392-3182 or janice.krumwiede@covington.kyschools.us 

?Edmondson is a 1965 graduate of Holmes High School. He went on to University of Kentucky Law School, graduating in 1972. He initially practiced with Spalding, Bubenzer and Grause. In 1975, he opened his own law firm, still located in Covington. Edmonson has served the community and represented every kind of public entity – from cities to school boards. ??He is a proud alum of Holmes, who often attends Bulldogs’ sporting events.

He delivered the Holmes commencement address a few years ago. In addition, Edmondson started a minority internship for Holmes students who are interested in careers in law.?? He has been a member of many organizations and served on numerous boards, including the Northern Kentucky Mental Health Association, the Optimist Club, Ft. Mitchell Lions Club and Covington Lions Clubs.

He has also received local, regional and statewide awards for his valuable work.??“Some students have tough situations,’’ Edmonson said. “But I always let everyone know what a great school Holmes is and always has been. That tradition continues. Holmes turns out a great product. Sometimes kids need encouragement and a little help.’’
