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.

More than 60% of rural Americans live in areas the National Institute of Health deem to be underserved by mental health professionals and only about 20% of social workers nationwide are employed in rural areas, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These stats, coupled with the high demand for licensed social workers — especially in areas like those surrounding Kent State University’s Regional Campuses — produce significant disparities and gaps in care for people needing social services.
Filling in those gaps is the primary aim of program director Matt Butler and Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program through Kent State’s College of Applied and Technical Studies (CATS), which will have an emphasis on rural social work.
