Canfield schools awarded safety leadership award


The Canfield Local School District was awarded the Joan Kovach Safety Leadership Award from the Mahoning Valley Safety Council today.

The award recognizes Mahoning Valley businesses and individuals who transform their workplaces from high-risk cultures to safety-driven environments.

Canfield was the only school district to be nominated.

“We are proud to receive this award. It’s wonderful to be recognized by an organization that is a leader in safety across Ohio,” said Superintendent Alex Geordan.

The award is named in honor of the late Joan Kovach, who owned City Machine Technologies and was a long-time safety advocate.
