Buckeye Hills-Hocking Valley Regional Development District Receives National Association of Development Organizations Innovation Awards

Buckeye Hills received two 2016 Innovation Awards from the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) for the Ohio River Medical Mission and the Appalachian Ohio P-20 Council efforts.

The June 2015 Ohio River Medical Mission hosted in Pomeroy was an innovative readiness training with the U.S. military.

Years in the planning, the mission provided medical, dental, vision and veterinary services to the community at no charge. The 10-day event served a total of 2,952 patients and animals with an estimated total cost savings to the community of nearly $740,000. The patients came from 61 towns across 20 counties in four states.

In addition, the Appalachian Ohio P-20 Council, another program that Buckeye Hills was pleased to partner in creating, won a NADO Innovation Award. The Council serves nine counties in two Educational Service Centers working to inspire a regional commitment to student success through community collaboration and partnerships. From pre-school through career training, or even post-graduate studies, the Appalachian Council partners to make every student college or career ready. Learn more at
