Trustee and Alumnus Richard Marsh to Lead Kent State Presidential Search Committee

The search for Kent State University’s 12th president became official today (May 14, 2013) when the university’s Board of Trustees named Trustee and Kent State alumnus Richard H. Marsh to serve as chair of a broad-based presidential search committee. President Lester A. Lefton announced last month that he will retire effective July 1, 2014, giving the Board and the university community ample time to conduct a national search for his successor.
