Kent State’s Green Space Welcomes Fair Goers


For hundreds of area residents who attended the 2019 Columbiana County Fair, Kent State Columbiana County had its own way of welcoming them to the annual event.

A newly landscaped area and signage helped showcase the work of employees from the Kent State Salem Campus who created the space at the Saltwell Road entrance, near by the bridge.

Those involved with the project included John Majernik, horticulture program director; Jeff Christopher, senior facilities manager; John Stainer, building and grounds supervisor; and grounds employees.

The plant material was donated by Catalpa Grove Farm in Colubiana.

According to Majernik, as the horticulture class schedule cycles, this space is likely to be used by students in the landscape construction class or other horticulture classes.
