SOESC recognizes local businesses


The Southern Ohio Educational Service Center (SOESC) recently recognized Alkermes, The Equipment Superstore, The First National Bank of Blanchester, New Sabina Industries, and Phil and Vicki Snow for their strong support of Clinton County Schools as part of the Ohio School Boards Association’s (OSBA) 2015 Business Honor Roll program.

The contributions of 18-year sponsors Phil and Vicki Snow and The First National Bank of Blanchester and 17-year sponsor New Sabina Industries have allowed the Business Advisory Council to award 117 scholarships totaling $57,700 since 1998.

The contributions of Alkermes and The Equipment Superstore provided sponsorship for the Gifted Summer Camp program for 2013 and 2014.

“The generosity of this year’s recipients allowed us to provide academic enrichment and scholarship opportunities to our students,” said SOESC Superintendent Tony Long, “and on behalf of the SOECS, its board members, students, administrators and staff, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for all that they do for the children of our community.”
