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.

Peace Event

On the heels of a year plagued by a global pandemic, a combative presidential election, rising violence in the form of mass shootings, and an increased awareness of social inequities and injustice, Kent State Trumbull senior English student Valerie Dalrymple decided to do something positive. In January she began planning “It Starts with You: Promoting Peace and Civil Discourse in Our Lives.”  

The free and virtual event will be held on Tuesday, May 4, from 2-5 pm. Dalrymple chose May 4 because of its historical context for Kent State University.

Message from the Dean

We are just over a year since our lives changed, classes converted to remote learning, and we lost much of the face-to-face contact that we had taken for granted. Considering what we all have endured since those first COVID-19 cases reached Ohio last March, our campus has been able to continue moving forward, and even thrive. The campus even showed an increase in enrollment for the fall semester, something we were particularly enthusiastic about.
