COSHOCTON – Friends of the Coshocton Campus of Central Ohio Technical College enjoyed a ride on the Monticello III Canal Boat on Saturday, Sept. 24 and then met for lunch and enjoyed a piece of cake decorated in the COTC colors and 45 year logo at the Lock Landing in Roscoe Village.

Bonnie L. Coe, Ph. D., president of Central Ohio Technical College, thanked everyone for attending and introduced the scholarship recipients in attendance. Each recipient gave remarks on how they have benefitted from their scholarship and received a round of applause.

Dr. Coe said, “When we think about the assets in Coshocton County, Roscoe Village, what we have experienced every single time I come to Coshocton I think about what a privilege it is for us to be here and to be partnered with so many organizations in Coshocton. I thank you for your hospitality and I thank you for coming today. If I had to guess each one of you in the room probably had about five places you could go today so I thank you so much for choosing us.

“People ask the college, they ask me over and over in these tight economic times how is it that the college continues to offer the kind of programming that we do and there are many explanations for that but one of the main explanations is that we partner, we look for the right partnerships and we bring a little bit to the table and they bring a little bit to the table and we are able to put the assets together and do some extraordinary programming.

“I do want to say thank you to all of our-and now I can say-long standing partnerships. We are looking here at 10 to 12 years that we’ve been partnering with you folks. So thank you, very, very much.”

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob.

I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
