JEDD Awards 5 Scholarships at Twinsburg's Regional Academic Center
In conjunction with Kent State University's Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg, the JEDD (Joint Economic Development District) of Twinsburg Township and the Village of Reminderville have awarded five students with scholarships. Senior Angela Green (Twinsburg/Technology) and sophomores Stephanie Berry (Twinsburg/Human Development Family Studies), Nicolle Estevez (Bedford/Justice Studies), Nicole Meyers (Streetsboro/Nursing), and Rocco Pignatiello (Twinsburg/Accounting) have each been awarded $500 scholarships to continue their studies at Kent State University's Regional Academic Center.
The JEDD Scholarship was established in 2008 by an endowment provided by the Joint Economic Development District (JEDD). Each year, up to five Kent State University-Geauga/Regional Academic Center students can be awarded scholarships. First priority for awarding the scholarship is given to applicants who are an employee, spouse, or child/stepchild of an employee of a business located in the Joint Economic District area. Next priority is given to any resident of Twinsburg Township or the Village of Reminderville, and then to a resident of the City of Twinsburg. In addition, students must be enrolled in at least one course at the Regional Academic Center with credit earned towards an associate's or bachelor's degree and maintain satisfactory academic progress.
The Regional Academic Center is an extension of Kent State University's Geauga Campus and is conveniently located at the intersection of Routes 82 and 91 near I-480 exit 36. Plans are underway for the building of the new Regional Academic Center which is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2012. The new location for the Regional Academic Center will be at Creekside Drive adjacent to I-480 and Route 91.
