Kent State Stark Professor Named One of Stark County’s “Twenty Under 40!”Posted Apr. 30, 2012
Erin Hollenbaugh, assistant professor of communication studies at Kent State University at Stark, was named one of Stark County’s “Twenty under 40!” winners by ystark! – a department of the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Each year, nominees are selected based on skills, community service and trusteeship, as well as personal and professional achievements. As stated by the name of the award, all of the recipients are under the age of 40 years and were chosen by a selection committee composed of business and community leaders, representing a range of industries across the county.
“I’m very honored and humbled to be among those named as the ‘Twenty under 40!’ recipients. It came as a complete surprise! I think that having Kent State Stark represented on the list reinforces the importance of this campus’s involvement in the greater Canton and Stark County community,” says Hollenbaugh.
Hollenbaugh and her fellow nominees will be honored at the Fifth Annual “Twenty under 40!” awards ceremony on June 5 at Glenmoor Country Club.
