The Education Center of Rising Sun became a reality when the Lilly Endowment Inc. provided
$38 million in grants to the Region 9 EcO15 initiative. Economic Opportunities Through
Education by 2015 (EcO15) has provided grants which funded educational programs associated with
Advanced Manufacturing, Healthcare, and Hospitality/Tourism for 10 counties in Southeastern Indiana.
Counties include: Bartholomew, Dearborn, Decatur, Franklin, Jackson, Jefferson, Jennings, Ohio, Ripley
The goal of EcO15 is to advance people in the Southeast Indiana region by at least one level in
their education, training, job placement, and income level. The project over time will help thousands of
residents in the region enhance their economic and educational well-being and overall quality of life. In
addition, EcO15 will incrfease skill levels and the quality of the work force, which in turn supports existing
companies while boosting the economy and creating a higher quality of life for residents in this region.
The City of Rising Sun granted permission for the Ohio County Community Foundation (Grant
Administrator) to take residence in the building on Smart Drive.
