John “Jack” P. Rowe

“My grandfather, John P. Rowe, was a former professor at Kent for many years. His passion for teaching and advising students and faculty was evident in the stories and experiences he shared about his years at Kent and Kent-Stark. I even hold fond memories of being the bright-eyed 6-year old sitting in his lecture taking notes in my coloring or sticker book; seeing his pride as when graduates were presented at commencement while he sat on stage; conversations with advisees and tales of how he insisted they come have a home-cooked meal at his house.”
