Jeff Wages Honored with CORAS Support Staff Award


On Wednesday, January 15, 2020 on the Zanesville campus of Ohio University, the Coalition of Rural and Appalachian Schools (CORAS)  recognized Support Staff across the Appalachian Region of Ohio with the 2020 Support Staff Award.

Jeff Wages, serving as District Maintenance for Indian Valley Local Schools was honored with the award.  Wages has 23 years of service with the school district. 

Superintendent, Dr. Ira Wentworth, says “Jeff Wages is an above-and-beyond type person.  Whether it be driving a school bus route or coming in on the weekend to repair a fire suppression line that burst, he always makes himself available above-and-beyond the call of duty to help others.”

CORAS has a 31-year tradition of advocating and supporting public schools in the Appalachian region.
