Kent State Trumbull and Mahoning Valley Scrappers Team Up for Local Students

Kent State Trumbull and the Mahoning Valley Scrappers are partnering to recognize hardworking students and provide opportunities for their continued success. 
 
At each Scrappers’ home game, Kent State Trumbull recognizes local high school and college students who exhibit a balance of academic accomplishment, leadership, and community engagement. Students who earn the Valley of Dreams Award for Student Leadership will receive four tickets to a game and will be announced on the field before throwing out the first pitch. They will also receive a Valley of Dreams T-shirt. 
 
The award is meant to recognize students who contribute to the community and provide leadership for other students, according to Dr. Lance Grahn, Dean and Chief Administrative Officer, Kent State Trumbull. 
 
“These are students who work hard to get good grades, but they make their mark in other commendable ways as well,” said  Grahn. “With the Valley of Dreams award, we are especially pleased to recognize students who may normally fly under the radar.”
