Seventy-year-old Rudd (Ted) Bare II has the surprise of a lifetime planned for his children on Aug. 18, 2018.

On that day, Mr. Bare will don a cap and gown and walk across the stage at Kent State University’s Summer Commencement to accept his Bachelor of Science degree, completing the college studies that he began here 50 years ago.

The Kent State University Jewish Studies Program in the College of Arts and Sciences will host a presentation by Annamaria Orla-Bukowska, Ph.D., a social anthropologist at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland on Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. at the Cohn Jewish Student Center on the Kent Campus.
