Coshocton Foundation helping locals earn degrees

| September 15, 2020

A winner of one of the Coshocton Foundation’s adult or “non-traditional student” scholarships, the Jones Metal Products Adult Legacy Scholarship, has been announced by the Coshocton Foundation. Michael A. Moore of Coshocton was awarded the $2,000 scholarship for Coshocton County residents attending COTC. Moore will be studying criminal justice with the goal of one day following in his grandfather’s footsteps by becoming a sheriff deputy in Coshocton County.

The Jones Metal award was created in 2013 to honor the 90th anniversary of the company. The winner is chosen by COTC admission staff members.

In addition to five adult awards announced earlier, the Coshocton Foundation is partnering with Central Ohio Technical College in the Coshocton Promise program, guaranteeing qualifying first-degree seeking Coshocton County residents free tuition through the Clarence and Grace Miller Scholarship Fund. Also, two scholarships in the amount of $1,750 each are offered to students in the master’s program at the Coshocton Campus of Muskingum University.

On the high school level, the Coshocton Foundation awards more than 100 scholarships annually to graduating seniors of the local high schools.
