News OCR Text: The Accounting/Business Management students at Stow-Munroe Falls High School attended Accounting Career Day at Kent State University in October.

The Ohio Society of CPAs and Kent State University host this annual event to encourage high school students to pursue a business degree and enter the field of Accounting, Finance, and Management. Several area CPAs, Kent State Professors, and Professionals from the Ohio Society of CPAs give presentations and answer questions about "Life as a CPA." The professional student organizations in the School of Business also make presentations and organize and run this field trip for the students.

"Accounting is one of our strongest elective programs at SMFHS," said Lark Forbes, business instructor, Accounting, Business Management, Business Pathways, and Marketing Fundamentals.

"Over 40 Stow business students (the largest group) attended this function. We have been attending this annual event for several years. It is an excellent field trip -- informative, organized, and motivating."

At KSU the students receive valuable information when exploring accounting as a potential future career. The opportunity to meet with students in the Accounting Association and Beta Alpha Psi shows the importance of club activities, networking, and community service. The Ohio Society of CPAs provides information in the form of handouts and their state representative who explains the benefits of a student or professional membership in their organization. Students also receive information from professors and campus representatives about the School of Business, Accounting programs, and Learning Communities.

"One of the strongest benefits of this field trip is for our students to meet and hear from actual CPAs who work in the field of Accounting and Finance. Many of our students are just beginning to learn about the importance of receiving certification and becoming a CPA to succeed in this growing field," said Forbes.

"It is beneficial for them to hear about Kent State students and the path they have taken since high school. Kent State students are obviously very passionate about their choice of major and the benefits of being a Kent State Accounting Major. The internships Kent State provides through area accounting firms is one of the best in the area. Many KSU students are fortunate to intern at one of the top four accounting firms and later receive a job offer after graduation. Our students are interested in entering fields that they will enjoy and will provide job opportunities.

"They always come away from this field trip with the knowledge the field of accounting can provide an excellent future" she added.

News OCR Text: Two students drove all night to cover the funeral of a young and hope-filled president

If you weren't alive 50 years ago, you might not realize how stunned the nation was at President Kennedy's assassination.

He was the youngest president in U.S. history and was largely embraced as a representative of a new generation. College kids joined the Peace Corps at his urging. And suddenly he was dead.

At WKSU, four students drove all night on Sunday, Nov. 24, so they could cover the Monday morning funeral of the president. One got a press credential from the Niles Daily Times and the others had letters of introduction from Professor John Weiser, the program manager at WKSU.

They presented their papers to White House Press Secretary Pierre Salinger and were able to watch the ceremonies and procession that day from the White House grounds. Bob Woods, the student news director at WKSU, and Bob Baker phoned back reports.

News OCR Text: ASHTABULA - The Ashtabula County Chamber of Commerce honored four local businesses during its 126th annual meeting and Business Excellence Awards on Friday, Nov. 15, at Kent State University - Ashtabula.

Before handing out the awards, Tina Stasiewski, chair of the board and vice president of business development at Ashtabula County Medical Center, spoke about four initiatives undertaken by the board of directors this year:

—Taking an active approach to connecting with elected officials.

—Endorsing the Ashtabula Area City Schools levy.

—Launching Engage Ashtabula County, a program to help people looking to enter the public sector.

—Changing the name from the Ashtabula Area Chamber of Commerce to the Ashtabula County Chamber of Commerce and creating a new logo.

“We've been the driving force of business development in this county for 126 years,” Stasiewski said. She said the board felt the name should represent how the Chamber represents all of the county - not just the city.

The Chamber's new mission statement, “Advocating for business by engaging our members and connecting our communities to improve the economic vitality of Ashtabula County,” also formed the basis for the awards given to businesses that morning.

Cristal received the Connect Award for working with Buckeye Local Schools on a new program that connects students with mentorships in local companies and for investing in more infrastructure and jobs in the county.

Andover Bank received the Engage Award for its work in the community and support of local causes.

And Ferrante Winery received the Advocate Award for its promotion of the local wine industry and for partnering with KSU - Ashtabula for its wine-related career programs and with Pairings, Ohio's Wine and Culinary Experience underway in Geneva.

Jessica Forsythe, president and CEO of the Chamber, presented the President's Award to Thomas Fence Co., represented by Glenn Thomas, Drew Thomas and Anne Stolfer, for its success in the region while still keeping its roots local.

News OCR Text: A friendly, furry, four-legged officer is quickly becoming the Kent State University Police Department's most beloved member.

Coco, a two-year-old German shepherd, and her partner, Officer Anne Spahr, are the first K-9 unit in the university police department's history.

"You can get her up at any time of night or day, and if she knows that she's going to be working, she gets very excited," said Spahr, who now looks after Coco at work and home.

And, though Coco's excited and social demeanor have become infectious at the office and with the students she meets, her nose is the force's biggest asset.

Coco, who came to the United States from Germany in late August through the Von Der Haus Gill K-9 Academy in Wapakoneta, is primarily trained to sniff out explosives.

In the case of a bomb threat on campus, KSU Police Chief and Director of Public Safety John Peach said Coco's abilities to detect the odors of explosives drastically enhances the department's ability to find the threat or secure a building.

"In order to secure a building that has had a bomb threat -- to do it properly when we think there could really be a bomb there -- takes hours, and that's one building," Peach said. "If you have a dog, you can get a building done in 15 to 20 minutes."

Coco's detection abilities are not limited to explosives, though.

Peach said Coco will also prove critical in tracking down burglars on campus as well as missing persons.

"Nothing in the city of Kent that happens fails to touch us somehow as a community. To that degree, we have kids who disappear, we have elderly people with Alzheimer's who disappear from their homes that need a dog to track them quickly and sometimes there's no dogs available," he said. "Kent State wants to have the resource to be able to help and save a life of either a small child or an elderly citizen."

News OCR Text: When Victoria Humphreys first visited Kent State University years ago, she felt alone.

Born on an American Indian reservation in the Gila River Indian Community of Sacaton, Ariz., Humphreys was disheartened by a lack of Native American-focused student groups and connections to her heritage at the Kent campus' Student Multicultural Center.

An event Wednesday morning, however, dedicated a symbolic quilt Humphreys hopes will let other students know the Native American heritage is ingrained and honored at KSU.

"Future generations will now be able to walk through these halls and see something from our legacy," said Humphreys, a KSU senior and president of the university's Native American Student Association. "That's what's so important."

Coinciding with Native American Heritage Month this November, the Multicultural Student Center dedicated a community star quilt Wednesday featuring roughly 30 squares sewn by various citizens, students and university personnel that were then tied into one piece by Nell Orndorf of Cuyahoga Falls around an eight-point star she created herself and donated to the project. The event also served as a small fundraiser for the NASA group's spring pow-wow.

Loaded with symbolism, the quilts have a long, storied history of use in Native American customs and ceremonies.

The star is held in reverence in the Native American culture as many tribes believe their ancestors were compelled by the Creator to follow the North Star, said Orndorf, whose lineage has ties to Delaware and Blackfoot tribes.

The quilt itself is special because of its many uses for personal warmth, shelter and groundcover. It reflects the power of community and unity through its creation with help from individuals of varying cultures and backgrounds. The squares created by citizens, staff and students line the perimeter of the quilt.

Named "Lightfeather," the piece features symbolic images from the buffalo that served as the well-being for many tribes to the eagle and shell dancers, which represent men and women.

The name comes from the image of a lighthouse with a feather across it. The lighthouse represents the guiding light of the Creator, Orndorf said, while the feather is a sacred symbol representing all forms of life.

"These quilts are very important to our culture, and because it's made with love and has so many elements that go into it, it's a huge honor to be able to even get one of these," said Humphreys, whose lineage has ties to the Akimel O'Odham and Hopi tribes.

The piece now hangs in the Multicultural Student Center, where it will stay, said Trinidy Jeter, program coordinator for the Student Multicultural Center.

"I feel so much pride and honor to be able to do this," said Orndorf, an avid sewer who has crafted traditional garments for those served by the Native American Indian and Veterans Center. "This is like someone standing their with arms open, welcoming everyone who walks through those doors with peace and tranquility. That sort of security, peacefulness is welcoming to anybody of any culture."

"There will always be a place for that on Kent State walls, showing the love and unity of this community," Humphreys said. "I'll be able to come back one day and show my kids we were here."
