To honor and celebrate the work and dedication of Dorothy B. Lutsch, an emeritus professor of music at Kent State University at Tuscarawas, a scholarship to benefit Kent State Tuscarawas students majoring in music, theater or art has been established.

The scholarship, named the Dorothy B. Lutsch Fine & Performing Arts Memorial Scholarship, will promote the development of music and art majors and the appreciation and importance of the arts in our culture.

Mrs. Lutsch graduated from Kent State University in 1964 with a Master of Education from the College of Education, Health and Human Services.
