Step in. Stand out! That was a common theme among student speakers and graduates at this year's Kent State University's Regional Campus spring graduation ceremonies.

From the shores of Lake Erie to the banks of the Ohio River, more than 1,600 Regional Campus students graduated with master's, bachelor's and associate degrees, along with certificate programs certifications.

When Marissa Lemasters graduated from Newton Falls in 2018, she never imagined where she would be Friday night: standing in front of hundreds of people as the student speaker for Kent State Trumbull's 2024 Spring Commencement.

Regarding her high school experience, Lemasters reflected that she was not just shy,  but “super shy.”

"Besides lower tuition, one of the reasons I chose Kent State Trumbull was its size," Lemasters said. "I had not come out of my shell so I wanted a smaller campus close to home."

Jeffrey M. Magada, founder and executive director of Flying HIGH Inc., will deliver the keynote address at Kent State University at Trumbull's 2024 spring commencement.

More than 300 students and family members will attend the ceremony that begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 10, at Packard Music Hall.
