Kent State University recently held its inaugural TRIO Achievement Luncheon to bring together the five TRIO Programs on Kent State’s campus. TRIO is a set of federally funded college opportunity programs that motivate and support students in their pursuit of a college degree. More than 120 university partners and students attended the TRIO Achievement Luncheon.

“The luncheon’s purpose was to raise awareness of the important work TRIO Programs do locally and nationally, as well as raise funds to support the needs of its students,” said Dana Lawless-Andric, director of Pre-College and TRIO Programs at Kent State. “We work to break down the barriers to postsecondary educational achievement experienced by first-generation college and low-income students.”

The luncheon highlighted the achievements of three TRIO participants, former and current, representing the three programs. The achievers who were honored were:

  • Patrick Gable, representing Upward Bound Programs
  • Monique Menefee, representing Student Support Services
  • D’Andra Mull, Ph.D., representing McNair Scholars


The inaugural luncheon was sponsored by Kent State’s Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the Division of Graduate Studies and Undergraduate Studies.
