Sandy's Scrapbook

She was an extremely kind person always willing to help anyone in trouble. She was a perfect listener, her advice greatly respected … Sandy was my friend. I am a very fortunate boy.  – Marty Levick

Sandy was such a wonderful person. She always wanted to help others, and always did. Knowing Sandy has been a significant part of my education at Kent, she made me think, but most of all to be sensitive to others. – Linda Coats

To begin to describe what a beautiful person Sandy was would take forever, but there is one thing I want people to know about her which is that Sandy was not a reactionary student and was not involved in the demonstrations at Kent State. Sandy was not the type to cause or incite such events, but rather she always spread joy, happiness and laugher in people's hearts wherever she went. She was the ultimate of life, especially of my life. – Bruce Burkland

In an era before social media, Sandy Scheuer chronicled her life in the pages of her scrapbooks. Her candid photographs, personal letters, and lovingly selected mementos, paint a story full of friendship, family, and adventure. They are the inspiration for this exhibit. The colors, flowers, artifacts, and inscriptions all mirror her own selections.
