Closing in on six decades after it first opened, with scores of history and memories, countless students and multiple generations of educators having graced its campus, Lovett Elementary School still stands proudly on a hill on Northside Drive, now boasting a facelift that was specifically designed to be in keeping with its original façade.
On April 12, 1964, members of the Lovett community in east Clinton kept on their Sunday best after church. After all, the dedication of Lovett Elementary School was at three o’clock that afternoon, and the opening of the elementary school signaled a new beginning for area youth.
