Flashes Take Care of Flashes


With the multitude of challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, thousands of students and their families are encountering unexpected financial challenges associated with travel, food, housing, technology needs and, in some cases, lost wages by both the student and parents. “Our students need us now more than ever,” said Kent State President Todd Diacon. “I am confident our Golden Flash family will answer that call, because despite the uncertainty we are all facing at this time, there is one thing that remains constant: Flashes take care of Flashes.”
