Columbiana County Campuses Remember
To help the university mark the 50th anniversary of the events of May 4, 1970, the Salem and East Liverpool campuses each had scheduled a series of events throughout the spring semester that, unfortunately, were canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The events included guest speakers, memorial dedications, displays and panel discussions for the campuses and their respective communities.
Despite not being able to hold these events, the Salem and East Liverpool campuses join Kent State University in remembering the lives that were lost and the lives that were forever changed on May 4, 1970.
Lit candles and gold roses were placed on the Salem and East Liverpool campuses in remembrance of the four students who died that day: Alison Krause, Jeffrey Miller, Sandra Scheuer and William Schroeder.
