WARREN, Ohio (Aug. 31, 2021) -- Dealing with uncertainty is tough, especially when it deals with your health. Many have come to grips with this struggle over the last 18 months as surges of COVID-19 have come and gone. Cross-country coach Bill Hess takes uncertainty in stride, moving forward with a positive attitude and a smile. He was already running the race of his life.

In 2008 at the age of 44, Hess was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease a degenerative disease that eventually breaks down the nerves in the brain, causing physical and cognitive disorders.

Message from the Dean

Plato once said, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” Although our students, faculty, and staff adapted to remote learning and meetings this past school year, we missed true social interaction on campus. Informal conversations in hallways and parking lots were limited and even during those brief encounters, masks covered friendly smiles. I am cautiously optimistic for our return this fall and to again see students, faculty, and staff on campus, gathered in the halls, sitting outside of the Student Union, and building friendships.

Richard Lehman and his family

Warren, OH (May 13, 2021) - When Richard Lehman Jr. joined the Army in 2010, he planned to make it a career. One night changed those plans when he was loading 30 mm ammunition onto an AH-64D Apache Longbow helicopter. However, as is sometimes true, when one door closes, another one opens. 

Lehman was stationed at Ft Campbell, Kentucky and deployed to Afghanistan twice in 2011 and then again in 2014.
