Robin McManus Scholarship Fund for Children

Celebrate diversity, inclusion, and the unique expansion of young minds that happens at the Child Development Center!

Since 1972, the Kent State Child Development Center (CDC) has played a central role in the education of young children, preparing future teachers and furthering research in education. The Robin McManus Scholarship Benefit raises funds for the Robin McManus Scholarship, which provides need-based student scholarships and allows more children in our community to access the enriching experience of a CDC education. Robin was a kind, compassionate, and skilled teacher and student supervisor who cared deeply about young children, their families, and pre-service teachers. Since the fund's founding 11 years ago, 45 children have attended the CDC through the McManus Scholarship.
