Coshocton residents reap the benefits of an educational center with college classes and degrees. The Coshocton Educational Center is in its second quarter of operation, offering programs from Central Ohio Technical College, Ohio State University, and Muskingum College. It operates like a community college, but students can take classes from any of the schools. Earned degrees range from associates to masters. Organizers said the numbers have been steadily rising. They expect around 250 students for the fall quarter beginning September 24th. The program is very beneficial for single parents who can now attend classes without driving far out of town. The Governor’s Office of Appalachia provided half a million dollars to get the center started. It’s most popular classes right now are in nursing.
