Kent State University at Salem recently received a bobcat – but not the four-legged kind. Rather, Leppo Rents/Bobcat of Akron donated a Bobcat mini excavator to the campus to be used by horticulture students and faculty.

The Bobcat is typically used for general excavation and site preparation projects. Dale Leppo, chairman of Leppo Rents/Bobcat of Akron, made the donation possible and Butch Bisirri, sales specialist, delivered the machinery to the campus.
