Congratulations to our graduate, Candice Nemoff!Posted Dec, 13, 2013
Candice Nemoff graduated in December 2013 with a BFA in Theatre Design and Technology, and minors in Jewish Studies and Religion Studies. She is very excited to be starting her theatrical career, and is moving to Philadelphia in the spring for an internship. Her time at Kent State would not have been so incredible without the generosity and encouragement from the Jewish Studies Program and specifically Chaya Kessler. Candice would personally like to thank the Samuel Melton Scholarship Foundation for her scholarships throughout her Kent State Career. She was also blessed to be able to work for the Jewish Studies Program and learned a lot of useful information from her time there. She enjoyed her classes in Hebrew, comparative religion, and Jewish studies. She was also very lucky to able to participate in the semi-annual May intersession trip to Israel in 2012. This was not her first time in Israel though; she had already spent Spring 2011 at Tel Aviv University, and loved every minute of it. Through her time at Kent State, she has become prepared to be a Jewish leader and educator and this would not have been possible without Chaya and the Jewish Studies Program.
