2018 Hall of Fame Nominations & Alumni Weekend
Planning for the 2018 Alumni Reunion Weekend is underway. Kicking off the weekend will be a three day continuing medical education conference hosted here in Independence, Ohio on Thursday August 16 through Saturday August 18, 2018. That’s not all, mix in a little pleasure with your work this trip because the college will also be hosting our Alumni Reunion on Friday, August 17th honoring class years 1958, 1963,1968, 1973, 1978, 1983, 1988, 1993, 1998, 2003, 2008, 2013, 2018. Our CPM Hall of Fame Society Inductions and Alumni Awards Dinner will be hosted on Saturday, August 18th and the weekend will conclude with OPMSA’s annual golf outing on Sunday, August 19. Proceeds from this weekend will benefit our endowed student scholarship fund.
Alumni were challenged by Dr. Eugene Pascarella, ’82, KSUCPM Advisory Chair, during our 2017 event to support the college by inviting other classmates to attend our event. He shared his personal experience, knowing a prospective student in podiatry, who chose another college, over Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine because they were able to give her more scholarship dollars. Please join Dr. Pascarella and meet his challenge of inviting 1 other classmate when you decide to attend our weekend events.
Nominations for the Alumni Awards and Hall of Fame Society can be found on our webpage, www.kent.edu/cpm. We invite you to nominate a graduate who you believe is deserving of this award. Your nominations are due by December 31, 2017 for the next induction ceremony on August 19, 2017.
