PIQUA - Former Edison State Community College Board of Trustees member Mr. Robinson “Rob” Joslin was posthumously inducted into the Sidney City Schools Hall of Honor on Friday, April 22. Joslin was one of four members inducted this year. 


   “Mr. Joslin never gave less than 100% in any part of his life, career, and leadership,” said Edison State President Dr. Doreen Larson. “As an Edison State Trustee, Rob Joslin used his experience at the national level to advocate for supportive policies for our college and community colleges in general.” 

   Representing Shelby County as a member of the Edison State Board of Trustees from 2013 until his passing in 2016, Joslin’s leadership and contributions were instrumental during a time of transition at the College. Joslin was an advocate for developing and launching the agribusiness program offered by Edison State. 

   “The success of the Edison State agribusiness program is a result of the vision and mentorship of Rob Joslin,” Larson said. 

   Outside of Edison State, Joslin was heavily involved in the agricultural scene. He lived in Sidney, where he and his wife, Ellen, operated a 950-acre family farm, raising soybeans and corn. He was also active in representing Ohio in the American Soybean Association. 

   The Sidney City Schools Hall of Honor recognizes those whose performance and achievements reflect credit on Sidney City Schools. In this way, these people help current students find identity and set future goals.
