Kiss on the K 2019 Honorary Couples
Homecoming Kiss on the K Honorary Couples
Congratulations to our five honorary couples for Homecoming 2019. These couples will be recognized on September 21, during Kiss on the K.
Heather, ‘11, M. Ed., ‘13 and Billy Barbour
Heather shares Billy and I met in Centennial Court E in 2007. After many late-night talks at Rosie’s in Tri-Towers and time spent in the study halls, we started dating. We went to Kent State basketball games in the MACC, ate at Eastway and played racquetball at the REC Center. After 6 years of dating, we got married and attribute our meeting and happy memories together at Kent State. We celebrated our 2nd anniversary at Kent in 2016 and will be going back this year for Homecoming and to celebrate our 5th anniversary.
Jenna, ‘10 & Brad, ‘10 Winfield
Jennifer Cobb, ‘18 and Cody Shearrow
Haidar and Nicole, '15 Shafei
Nicole writes, Haidar came to Kent State in 2012 from Saudi Arabia where he grew up. We met through a mutual childhood friend of mine who introduced us just as friends over lunch in the hub. It was not love at first sight— just a lot of curiosity. I took a lot of interest in his culture and he took a lot of interest in mine. Kent State was the place where my eyes were opened to the beauty of cultures much different than my own, including my husbands. After being friends for about a year we began to date, were engaged shortly after and now have been married for over two years!
Congratulations to all our nominated couples!
