GAMBIER — Local businessman Mark Ramser was honored Friday evening with the Knox County Chamber of Commerce’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The honor was the highlight of the 10 annual awards presented at the chamber’s annual meeting and awards ceremony, held again this year in the Kenyon Athletic Center.
The Lifetime Achievement Award was sponsored by Central Ohio Technical College and presented by Dr. Bonnie L. Coe of COTC. Coe listed many of the efforts Ramser has contributed to, including his efforts to bring elements of COTC, Kenyon College and Mount Vernon Nazarene College to downtown Mount Vernon, and finally gave up trying to list everything.
“He leads by example,” she said. “And has enriched many lives.”
“I am very honored to receive this award,” Ramser said, “and to be included in this accomplished list of people who have received the award.”
The award is given each year to an individual whose lifetime achievements are measured by the positive influence they make on others and their contributions to the community.
