EVES to dedicate courtyard to memory

East View Elementary School will dedicate its courtyard to the memory of Margaret Cavitt, a longtime educator and beloved member of the Daviess County community, during a special ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 8. The school is located at 6104 Kentucky 405. 

The courtyard at EVES is located in middle of the school and provides a special area with picnic tables and landscaping for students, staff and families to enjoy nature. Landscaping includes seasonal flowers, a fountain, flags and bird feeders.

As part of the courtyard dedication ceremony, four rose bushes and a magnolia bush have been planted in Margaret’s memory. Two seasonal flags, a bench, and additional annual flowers have also been added to the courtyard, which have enhanced this area of peace and reflection. 

The dedication ceremony will also include the presentation of Margaret’s favorite book to the EVES library, for students to enjoy for many years to come. Copies of the book will also be presented to each of Mrs. Cavitt’s children and her husband Gary, who will be in attendance. 

East View staff members will also present the family with a memory book, and a former student of Mrs. Cavitt’s will return to the school to talk about the impact this outstanding educator had on his life. 

It will be a special time of remembrance for a lady who taught children at East View and Tamarack elementary schools for DCPS, and served as a guidance counselor at Cravens Elementary School in the Owensboro Public Schools district. 

Mrs. Cavitt died in an automobile accident on Jan. 17, 2012.
