“Clearly Kosciusko” Brand Tells a Story of Unity –

Press release

In short, “Clearly Kosciusko” tells a story of unity. And the phrase probably conjures up something a little different to all of us. That’s what makes it special. We are here in Kosciusko County together, whether we are just visiting, working, or putting down roots and calling it home. But how each of us lives life in “K-County” is what makes Clearly Kosciusko such a beautiful and diverse collection of stories.

Clearly Kosciusko is a countywide community voice and brand led by the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams (Lilly Center), and was created in partnership with the Kosciusko Economic Development Corporation (KEDCO), the Kosciusko County Convention and Visitors Bureau (KCCVB), and the Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce. All of these organizations help promote the county and specialize in what makes our community unique.

“From the beginning, Clearly Kosciusko’s mission was to create awareness of what unites us: the beautiful county where we play, grow and learn. It’s amazing to see community organizations, nonprofits, and for-profit businesses uniting under Clearly Kosciusko to champion all that our county has to offer,” said Dr. Nate Bosch, Director of Lilly Center.

Clearly Kosciusko is a welcome wave to a neighbor on a morning run.
It’s clear that Kosciusko is the cheering audience as the final act wraps up at the Wagon Wheel. Clearly, Kosciusko is the laughter of families biking the streets of Lake Winona.
Clearly, Kosciusko is the first drop of anchor and the last crackling log on the campfire.

“We want people to ‘find their way’ here, whether it’s planting new roots or finding ways to plug in and be more connected in the community,” said Alan Tio, CEO of KEDCO. “We all have contributions to make to the next chapter of this community, and Clearly Kosciusko is a way to connect us all and share stories with a unified and amplified voice,” said KEDCO CEO Alan Tio.
