25th Annual Wall of Fame Honors Banquet Held
Kent State University at East Liverpool held its 25th annual Wall of Fame Honors Banquet last Friday at the East Liverpool Country Club. A dinner program was held to honor students and this year’s Wall of Fame inductees.
The Wall of Fame was started by faculty and staff to celebrate the academic achievements of Kent State East Liverpool students. This year, award recipients were recognized for both scholarly excellence and service to the East Liverpool community. In addition, the campus continued its tradition of presenting the Faculty and Staff Wall of Fame and the Dr. Joan D. Gailey Memorial Scholarships.
The program also provided the opportunity for the campus to recognize community leaders and alumni for their ongoing support of Kent State East Liverpool. This year’s inductees included: Colonel Ronald Eardley, ’85, William Miller,’65, Patricia Burnett and Thomas Rutledge. Eardley and Miller received the Lifetime Achievement Award for their professional accomplishments and community involvement. Burnett and Rutledge were recognized as Friends of the Campus for their advocacy in promoting higher education to the local community.

Representatives from several local healthcare facilities participated in a recent career fair on the Salem Campus, meeting with radiology students and nursing students set to graduate soon.
To welcome its new birthing manikin and the infant it delivers, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing department held a baby shower complete with games, snacks, gifts and decorations.
While a traditional baby shower helps celebrate an approaching birth, this shower included a simulated birthing experience involving nursing faculty and students who are in the parent-child module of their coursework.
Kent State East Liverpool students from the Occupational Therapy Assistant and the Physical Therapist Assistant programs combined their fundraising efforts to make a monetary donation to Focus Hippotherapy, an outdoor equestrian facility in Berlin Center that treats individuals with a variety of diagnoses.
The students presented a check to Dawn Speece, owner and executive director of the facility who founded the program in 1993. Hippotherapy comes from the Greek word “hippos,” meaning horse, and is defined as treatment with the help of a horse.
