State Senator Bill Coley (R-Liberty Township) today received the 2015 Ohio Educational Service Center Association’s Outstanding Legislative Leadership Award for his leadership in the Ohio Senate to strengthen education. 

"I am honored to receive this award and look forward to continuing efforts to improve and innovate our education system on behalf of Ohio's students and families," said Coley. "We need to ensure that every taxpayer dollar being spent supports our students in the classroom, giving them the best opportunity for success in school and in life."

Senator Coley was nominated by the Jefferson County ESC for his support of an initiative that permits ESC's to serve as fiscal agents, allowing districts to borrow funds for non-capital improvements such as textbooks, buses or other technology. 

The Ohio Educational Service Center Association (OESCA) represents the superintendents, teachers, supervisors and other personnel of Ohio's Educational Service Centers and seeks to promote excellence in education through the quality services provided by its member organizations.
