Investing in their own communities, Kent State University’s Geauga and Twinsburg Academic Center (TAC) Advisory Board members reached their goal in raising $25,000 this year to endow their namesake scholarship. Now and for generations to come, the Kent State University Geauga and TAC Advisory Board Endowed Scholarship will assist first-generation college students and other Kent State Geauga/TAC students experiencing difficulty in paying for their higher education. 

A sense of belonging is vital to the college experience. When you feel welcomed, accepted, and appreciated, you can explore your full potential without hesitation. 

Mahli Xuan Mechenbier, a senior lecturer in the Department of English at Kent State Geauga and Twinsburg Academic Center (TAC), is one of those exceptional faculty members who makes her students feel welcome—even celebrated—at this regional campus. 

NOTE: Kent State Geauga’s workplace safety training program, at the time of initial publication of this document (08/2023), is funded by a grant of $74,193 in federal funds, which constitutes 100 percent of the program budget. Zero percent, or $0 of the program budget, is financed through nongovernmental sources.
