Climate Survey: Kent State Employee Wins Weekend Getaway

Kent State University employee Angela Bertka, special assistant in the Office of General Counsel, has won a weekend getaway after entering to win a thank-you gift for completing the Kent State Climate Survey. Bertka will win her choice of Amish Country, Cleveland, Geneva-on-the-Lake or Kalahari.

Samantha Keshock, a student at Kent State University at Salem, won her choice of a $250 Amazon or Kent State University Bookstore gift card. Five other students from Kent State University at Trumbull and the Kent Campus each won $50 bookstore gift cards. All students who complete the survey and enter the drawings will earn FLASHperks and can enter to win a second $250 Amazon or Kent State University Bookstore gift card. Five $50 gift cards also will be awarded to students each week.

Another Chance to Win a Weekend Getaway

Kent State faculty and staff have the opportunity to win a second weekend getaway as a thank-you gift for completing the survey if they opt to enter the drawings. Employees who already have completed the survey and opted to enter the drawing will have another chance to win this second weekend getaway. There also will be weekly drawings for Kent State theatre and sports tickets. The survey will close on April 5, but completing it early increases your chances of earning the thank-you gifts.

Employees can choose if they want their names announced or not for winning a thank-you gift.

The Kent State University Board of Trustees today established a comprehensive, national search to recruit and select the university’s 13th president.


The events of May 4, 1970, placed Kent State University in an international spotlight after a student protest against the Vietnam War and the presence of the Ohio National Guard ended in tragedy with four students losing their lives and nine others being wounded. From a perspective of nearly 50 years, Kent State remembers the tragedy and leads a contemporary discussion and understanding of how the community, nation and world can benefit from understanding the profound impact of the event.
