Coshocton, Ohio, October 13, 2015 — Central Ohio Technical College’s Coshocton campus was recently awarded the "Planting Pride in Coshocton" award. The award was given to Building Supervisor John McDonald by the Coshocton City Council and the Coshocton Is Blooming Board at the Coshocton County Fair on October 3.
"It was quite an honor to be selected for this award," said McDonald. "It takes a lot of time and hard work to keep our campus looking beautiful. We want the community of Coshocton and all COTC students, faculty and staff to be proud of our facility."
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.
"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 try very hard to keep that historic appearance and still serve our customer’s needs. Montgomery Hall has a welcoming feeling because it does not look like a traditional college building. Several students have told us that they would not have had the opportunity to go to college if it hadn’t been for a COTC extended campus located here."
Central Ohio Technical College is a fully accredited, public college dedicated to providing high-quality, accessible programs of technical education in response to current and emerging employment needs, as well as encouraging the professional development of students, staff, faculty and administrators to assist them in achieving their maximum potential. COTC is the only technical college in Ohio operating four full-service campus locations: Newark, Coshocton, Knox and Pataskala.
