Senior Lianna Fertig Spreads Sandwiches and Hope
As a young girl, the pink slip Lianna Fertig held tightly in her small hands guaranteed her a free lunch at school. Today, the pink truck she drives carries that same promise to kids in the inner-city neighborhood where she grew up: Free Lunch Fridays.
Preparing ready-to-eat lunches from her food truck, EntICING Cakes, was a way for Fertig to help local communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nursing Program Graduates Enter the Field Early
Even as a preschooler, Marissa Stelluto knew she wanted to be a nurse. When her teddy bears got the sniffles, and her Barbies suffered the occasional broken leg, Stelluto was there to fix them.
Her brother and sister played along, and she learned early that not every superhero wears a cape. But they do wear a mask.
Stelluto is one of 21 Kent State University at Stark nursing students entering the field early to serve on the front lines of the COVID-19 health crisis.

Kent State Creates Emergency Fund to Help Students Financially During COVID-19 Crisis
