Driven Foundation
Partners in Education
You may notice that work is beginning on the front of our building to revitalize the landscaping in an effort to make the grounds more inviting and create a positive environment for students, staff and the community. This is the first of many projects to come!! We would like to say a special thank you to the Students and Faculty of Hocking College for the work they are doing for us. These students receive real world work experience and we receive a beautiful landscape. We are pleased to be partners in education with Hocking College.
Hocking College Land Management Students recently presented a landscape proposal for
New Lexington Middle School that will begin within the next few weeks.
