Centennial Celebration Launches

Emily Vincent & Brian Thornton
More than 400 alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students celebrated the 100th anniversary of Kent State University’s founding and participated in launch of the university’s $250 million Centennial Campaign during an Oct. 8 dinner. The event featured speeches, a historical video and a spectacular performance by more than 110 students.
“The Centennial celebration is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Kent State’s closest constituents to acknowledge the tremendous legacy of our first 100 years and envision how our campaign will transform the university for generations to come,” said Gene Finn, vice president for institutional advancement. “The evening is particularly special because of the contributions of our talented students, whose personal testimonials help illustrate just how important the entire’s community’s support is in ensuring their academic success.”

Partners have contributed more than $120,000 to defray many of the costs associated with the event. The top partners include Ologie, the Burbick Foundation, Huntington Bank and Great Lakes Publishing.
