Mountains are not as hard to climb when you have a generous boost to get to the summit. That is exactly what more than $108,000 in scholarship donations means to students at Kent State University at Stark. Students with various backgrounds and experiences had the opportunity to share their stories and extend thanks to their benefactors at the annual scholarship dinner in late September.

The Kent State Biological Anthropology faculty, graduate students, and alumni enjoyed getting together and catching up on Saturday, September 24th. In addition to celebrating 3 decades of Ph.D. recipients that have 100% job placement, we also celebrated the creation of The Department of Anthropology Endowed Fund for Graduate Student Research in Biological Anthropology. The donors for this fund are alumni and faculty of the biological anthropology program. All of this was made possible by one of the first graduates of the program, Bob Tague (Ph.D., 1986).
