Library Jam For Mojo A Big Success
A large crowd recently gathered in the Blair Memorial Library at Kent State University’s East Liverpool campus for “Library Jam for Mojo,” an evening of musical entertainment provided by area musicians in support of the Team Mojo Foundation.
The community event featured local performers Doug and Dave Smith, Bob Walker, Bill Crawford and Bernie Schmidbauer. Proceeds will benefit the charity’s free music lesson initiative which permits underprivileged children interested in music receive lessons given by professionals at DC Music in Calcutta.
Team Mojo Foundation is a volunteer based nonprofit organization focused on creating opportunities for area youth in way of support, guidance and financial assistance. The foundation is funded by generous donations from individuals, businesses and grants, as well as their own fundraising efforts. For more information on Team Mojo please contact Bill Crawford at 330-386-3939 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Kent State Librarian Susan Weaver was thrilled to see more than 100 people seated comfortably in the library enjoying a concert performed by some of East Liverpool’s most talented musicians. “We were very excited to have a large turnout. It was evident that our community fully supports our local musicians and charities,” she said. “In the future, we hope to hold many more concerts and events that celebrate the arts.”

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.
