BOC Receives Prestigious "Friends of the Campus" Award from Kent State Salem Campus
April 28, 2017
On Wednesday, April 26th, Kent State University Salem Campus held their annual Student Awards Dinner, honoring those students who showed great successes throughout the school year. It was a tremendous evening celebrating their hard work as awards and scholarships were handed out to students in many areas of concentration including nursing, horticulture, business, radiology, and more.
At the end of the program, one more award was presented, this time to the BOC team. We were fortunate enough to be selected as the 2017 recipient of the prestigious “Friends of the Campus” award. This was the result of a partnership going back many years between BOC and the Kent State Salem branch. Owner Todd Olson, and the BOC team, has supported Kent Salem over the years through the Rural Scholars Program, job shadowing opportunities, and other mutually beneficial endeavors.
Upon accepting the award, Todd shared some wisdom to the students in the room. The main theme of his message was to take advantage of the opportunities Kent Salem has provided. “Receiving a quality education, like you all have, is a great door opener. The sky is truly the limit for each and every one of you, so take the ball and run with it. And once you achieve your success, always remember how you got there and try to give a little bit back. You’ll find that is the most rewarding part of all.”
We want to thank Kent Salem’s Interim Dean, Dr. David Dees, and the rest of the Kent State team for this award. We look forward to our continued partnership and wish all the graduating students the best of luck!
