NEWARK, Ohio, October 13, 2017– Central Ohio Technical College's (COTC) Coshocton campus, 200 N. Whitewoman St., has been recognized for its attractive exterior and attention to detail once again. The campus was notified recently that it received the "Planting Pride in Coshocton" award for the third consecutive year. The Coshocton City Council and the Coshocton Is Blooming Board selected COTC's Coshocton campus for the honor in the landscape category.
"COTC expends time, dedication and hard work to make this campus an attractive location that can make Coshocton proud," said Building Supervisor John McDonald. "We're very pleased to be honored with this award again."
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.
"Because the Coshocton campus is located within historic Roscoe Village, a restored 1830s era canal town, we try to keep the look and feel of Roscoe Village in mind when we select flowers and plants," said McDonald. "We want to create an accessible campus but keep alive that unique historic appearance."
COTC was ranked number one in Ohio and number 19 in the nation by PayScale in its 2016-17 College Salary Report ranking the best community and career colleges by salary potential. COTC is a fully accredited, public college dedicated to providing high-quality, accessible programs of technical education in response to current and emerging employment needs. COTC is the only technical college in Ohio operating four full-service campus locations: Newark, Coshocton, Knox and Pataskala.
