Nikki Blankenship, Owner/Publisher/Editor:



Tausha Kennison, Business Office Manager:


Nikki Blankenship and I have know each other a few years now and are like minded in a lot of different ways. So when she came to me with this idea I was super excited to help her dreams come true. THE CANDOR stands for what I like the most “TRUTH.”

I am married and a mother of two daughters and amazing family that I was born into and married into. My family and friends are from all over the world from Holland, California, Arkansa, Virginia, Michigan, Ohio, and this is just to name a few. So to know that anyone anywhere will be able to read our website for free​ is just awesome.

In 1994 I earned my diploma from Valley High School and Scioto County Joint Vocational School also known as The CTC in Lucasville, Ohio. Since then I worked a few different jobs, including Mills Pride and Kenworth Truck Co. I have also college credit for courses in business management. Needless to say, I have established a career as a Business Office Manager and work part-time at Valley School District as a substitute cook. I’ve always been a hard worker, and I am extremely thankful to Nikki for this opportunity.
