Kent State University School


1914-1982


This site is to help Students of Kent State University School stay in touch.

Our school may be gone, but Graduates are everywhere. Whether you were a Blue Devil or a Statesman, sometime you will want to contact others from our school.

Multi-Year Reunion Set for July 2


A reminder from Roger Thurman advises that the Kent State University School Multi-Year Reunion will be July 2, starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Twin Lakes Country Club. Cost is $40 per person or $75 per couple. Checks are to be received prior to June 14 and can be mailed to KSUS Reunion, c/o Bev Graham, 1755 23d St., Cuyahoga Falls, OH, 44223. Make checks payable to KSUS Reunion and write your class graduation year on the memo line.

Organizers are hoping to have a display of memorabilia from various classes during the evening event. KSU has some trophies and items stored from past years that organizers would like to see displayed in a permanent collection on campus, recognizing the University School. Hopefully, this could be put in place in time for Kent State’s 100th anniversary in five years. Donations of memorabilia for this collection or for the evening’s display would be gladly accepted, according to organizers.

In addition to the reunion evening at the country club, class members and guests can enjoy the Heritage Festival in downtown Kent that will also be taking place July 2.

We have established this site on the Kent State University webpage hoping you will find us. This is just a beginning and all suggestions are welcomed. We are looking for a volunteer from each class to be listed with an e-mail address, so classmates may make contact.

Many classmates try looking for someone, to let class members know of a change of address, to pass on information to others in your class, or just to locate someone from another class and hopefully this new technology will be found useful.

As more is learned about the needs of each class, the site can be updated. Information about reunions will be one of the bits of information to be shared.

William S. Kent Hall was the location of Kent Normal High School from 1914 until 1926.
