The family of the late Donnie Tipton was recently presented with a tree planted in his honor by Henry County Public Schools. Tipton, who passed away just over two years ago, served as a dedicated member of the Board of Education for 26 years. The tree, a Cherokee Princess Dogwood donated and planted by Eric’s Curb Appeal LLC, will stand near one of Donnie’s favorite places – the football field of Henry County High School where he loved to watch his grandson play football. A final touch will be a memorial marker at the base of the tree. Pictured at the dedication are board member Steve Dent, Superintendent Terry Price, Donnie’s grandchildren Jaden Noel and Jake Noel, and his daughter Jennie Tipton Noel. Attending in spirit was Donnie’s wife, Kathy Tipton.
