"Congratulations for being named to the 2019 OSBA Business Honor Roll

With this certificate of recognition, the Ohio School Boards Association offers its sincere thanks to Cotterman & Company, Inc. for its strong support of Upper Valley Career Center. The board of education, students, staff and community also extend their appreciation.

School-business partnerships greatly benefit all involved. Local businesses play a crucial role in supporting their communities schools while students get real-world experience. This support is especially important as school districts struggle with limited resources.

Just as businesses support their schools, it's equally important that schools and communities support their local merchants and service providers. OSBA encourages everyone in the community to recognize Cotterman & Company, Inc.'s outstanding contributions to Upper Valley Career Center.

Upper Valley Career Center School District recognizes local firm for it's support (Press Release)

“Cotterman & Company is a strong supporter of the Upper Valley Career Center,” said Tony Trapp, Apprenticeship Coordinator. “Company representatives spent several weeks demonstrating and training our Construction Technology students in the proper techniques to install various roofing materials used in industrial and commercial applications. They have also been very involved in recruiting students into the skilled trades and hiring apprenticeship students from our programs. School received additional support and our students get real-world experience while learning from professionals. These opportunities also allow Cotterman & Company to gain a better understanding of our school system and share with our UVCC students about the critical workforce skills needed to succeed”.

“Upper Valley Career Center School District and its students, board members, administrators, and staff would like to express their sincere appreciation for all that they do for the students of our community,” said Trapp.
