Kent State Stark serves as backdrop for Balloon Classic
65,000 in attendance at 2018 Balloon Classic and Fireworks.
As a child, Jessica Anderson chased down hot-air balloons landing in the field near her grandparents’ home.
When Anderson took to the skies during the 2018 Balloon Classic and Fireworks, she carried with her that sense of childlike wonder. She marveled at the massive “DreamShip” featuring 130 drawings from children of fallen or disabled U.S. soldiers.
Bulldog Flash Academic Institute provides valuable experience
The distance between downtown Canton and New York City is 444 miles, but the journey for aspiring fashion designer Andrea McEaddy begins at her hometown university.
On the campus of Kent State University at Stark, the 15-year-old McKinley High School junior learned about pursuing her dream this summer as part of the Bulldog Flash Academic Institute.
“Being on a college campus really gives us a great introduction of what college will be like,” McEaddy said. “Coming here together, we have established a common goal that we can make it.”
