Dick Farrell Memorial Scholarship Fund

Richard Farrell

Kent State Tuscarawas will truly miss Dick Farrell, of Dover, who served on the Tuscarawas County University Branch District Board of Trustees for nearly 40 years.   The board oversees the Kent State University at Tuscarawas campus in New Philadelphia.  Dick served on the board since 1981.

Professionally, he joined The Times-Reporter in 1973 as a reporter after graduating from Kent State University.  During his career, he went on to become city editor, managing editor and then, in October 1990, he was named editor.  He held that job until August 2009.

As a campus trustee, Dick served in numerous capacities over that time, including as chairman and vice-chairman of the board.  He was a dedicated servant who truly loved the campus, caring deeply for the faculty, staff and students.
