NEWARK, Ohio, September 7, 2016 – Central Ohio Technical College's Coshocton campus, 200 N. Whitewoman St., is being acknowledged for its beauty again. The campus was notified recently that it received the "Planting Pride in Coshocton" award for the second year in a row. The Coshocton City Council and the Coshocton Is Blooming Board selected COTC's Coshocton campus for the honor.
"It's wonderful to be selected for this award again," said Building Supervisor John McDonald. "It takes dedication, time and hard work to keep our campus looking beautiful."
The Coshocton Is Blooming Board evaluates business and residential properties in the city to select award recipients. The board values properties that use plants and landscaping to make communities and schools more inviting, safer and more prosperous. COTC's Coshocton campus was selected for the award in the floral displays category.
"The Coshocton campus is unique because it is situated within Roscoe Village. Roscoe Village is a restored, 1830s era canal town which is located in an historic district," said McDonald. "We keep the Roscoe Village look and feel in mind when we select flowers to plant at Montgomery Hall. We try very hard to keep that historic appearance and still serve our customer's needs."
A community celebration will be held in the fall to recognize "Planting Pride in Coshocton" winners.
