Award Helps Students with Disabilities
Dr. Michael Kavulic, director of the Board of Technology and Operations and a Ph.D. graduate of the Higher Education & Student Personnel program at Kent State, worked with his wife, Carol, to create a new scholarship specifically for Career and Community Studies (CCS) students.
This program is designed to prepare students with intellectual and developmental disabilities for a successful adult life. This unique program features inclusive classes, career discovery and peer socialization.
Michael and Carol realized that financial barriers could prevent some students from the opportunities in the program, and so they created the Kavulic Family Achievement Award to help decrease the barriers to those wanting to participate in the program.
Michael has connected with leaders in the CSS program and is impressed by the passion and commitment of director Dr. Vonnie Hale and her entire staff.
“For us, we saw an opportunity to connect with and support an effort that makes a unique and powerful impact on the lives and futures of talented and driven students,” he said.
If you are interested in providing support to CCS students, please consider giving to the Career and Community Studies Support Fund (#10721).
