Kent State Gospel Choir Presents Free Concert on May 4

By Foluke Omosun

The Kent State University Gospel Choir will present its spring concert themed “Bless Me” on Wednesday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m. at Cartwright Hall, 650 Hilltop Drive, in Kent. Doors open at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

The concert honors victims of the May 4, 1970, shootings at Kent State and victims of the May 14, 1970, shootings at Jackson State University, and their families and friends.

Nearly 400 registered guests packed the Kent Student Center Ballroom in April for the 19th annual Office Support Staff Recognition Luncheon.

This year’s theme was “Kent State Connected.” The Division of Human Resources sponsors the Office Support Staff Recognition program each year to recognize support staffers in various departments, divisions and campuses.

In order to perform necessary maintenance on the boilers, steam transmission systems and electrical distribution systems, Kent State University’s Power Plant will be shut down from 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 15, to 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 22.

As a result of the steam shutdown, most buildings located on the Kent Campus will NOT have hot water to sinks and showers, etc., and/or heat and air conditioning.

The Division of Human Resources sets a minimum goal of two hours of Beyond Compliance training for all faculty and staff to complete each fiscal year. Beyond Compliance training provides a mix of learning opportunities that are geared toward relevant laws, university policies and violence prevention.
