DeSoto Central High School

Location: Southaven MS
Date Completed: Spring 2024
Manufacturer: Covington - The Choice of Champions

Today’s “Project in Action” spotlights the transformation of DeSoto Central High School in South Haven, Mississippi. Collaborating with Covington sales Pro Adam Exelbierd, school officials embarked on a journey to rejuvenate its gymnasium. 

Covington stripped away the old paint and finishes from the maple floor, replacing them with a fresh, modern look. Using cutting-edge finishing techniques, they infused the floor with vibrant colors and precise court lines, creating a masterpiece for athletic and physical education programs.

Covington, a prominent name in the South for installing new basketball floors, also excels in repairs, maintenance coatings, and total refinishing projects like this one at DeSoto Central.
