The Canfield Local School District is proud to announce that they received the Joan Kovach Safety Leadership Award from the Mahoning Valley Safety Council on May 9, 2018. Alex Geordan, Superintendent says, “We have made significant improvements and enhancements for our students, employees and those who enter our buildings. We are proud to receive this award! It’s wonderful to be recognized by an organization that is a leader in safety across Ohio!” Canfield was the only school district to be nominated.
First issued in 2007, the Joan Kovach Safety Leadership Award recognizes Mahoning Valley businesses and individuals who have effectively transformed their workplaces from high-risk cultures to safety-driven environments funded and supported by executive management.
The award is named in honor of Joan Kovach, a long-time safety advocate and owner of City Machine Technologies, Inc., until her death in 2006.
