President's Message Remembering Steve LaTourette

We are deeply saddened by news of the passing of former U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette.  He was a champion of the communities he served, including the Kent State University campuses at Ashtabula and Geauga as well as our Twinsburg Academic Center.

Congressman LaTourette was a frequent visitor to our campuses and academic center.  He believed that educational attainment leads to better jobs, and that better jobs make better citizens.  He was committed to our region beyond his 18 years as our Congressman, and his impact and influence continue to be felt.  We have lost a dear friend.

On behalf of the Kent State University family, I express heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends.

Beverly Warren

President
