Job/career contacts

Posted By Jeffrey D. Sampson, Monday, January 26, 2009
Does anyone have hiring contacts in the Youngstown-Warren area that could help me in finding a new job? I have experience in administrative work, customer service, quality control, purchasing, inventory control and materials management. My target area includes a 40-mile radius so if anyone can help me I can get a resume to you promptly.  I can be contacted at hiramgrad97@zoominternet.net. Thanks so much.

The Latest about me!

Posted By Franklin B. Hoard, Saturday, January 24, 2009

   My wife, Diane (Cleveland State '01) and I got married on November 18th, 2008 in Antigua.  I highly recommend getting out of Ohio in the winter time to any place that will have a swim up bar, especially if the pool isn't frozen over.  We live in Brunswick, Ohio, and we have an over photographed dog named Ginger.  I am currently a Facility Supply Specialist for Staples, and my wife is Executive Assistant to the President at Case Western Reserve University.  We both volunteer raising money for the Juvinile Diabetes Research Foundation, and we look to forward to traveling every chance we get.  I encourage emails to be sent to me at hoard11@aol.com

Chase is in the Race! Kent Native Takes on London Marathon to Help Abused Children

Posted By Sarah A. Chase, Thursday, January 8, 2009

London, 7 January 2009 - Sarah Chase, a Kent native now living in London, will be running in the world famous Flora London Marathon on Sunday, April 26 to raise money for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). 


The NSPCC is the UK's leading charity specialising in child protection and the prevention of cruelty to children. It is the only children's charity with statutory powers, enabling it to act to safeguard children.


“I’ve supported cancer research charities in the past, but when I decided to take on the London Marathon this year, I decided I wanted to run on behalf of a charity that would be able to make a more immediate impact. Sadly, during bad economic times, it’s children who often bear the brunt of their family’s hardships” said Chase.


Chase has been in race training since October, when she first learned she had qualified for a position in the marathon.  On average, Chase will run 12 or 13 miles of  every morning.  “That’s about the same distance from Macedonia, where my parents live, to the South Kent Post Office and back.”   Chase is building up her endurance and mileage levels right now, but will focus more on speed as the April date approaches.


When asked about the preparation Chase commented, “It’s hellish getting up at 5:30 am and going out into the cold, but my motto [which she picked up from William Armstrong while at Kent School] is ‘Before the Gates of Excellence the high gods have placed sweat.’  I don’t know, however, whether Hesiod meant this to be taken quite so literally?”


As a fundraising event, there is no marathon in the world that comes close to the 26.2 mile Flora London Marathon. Since 1981, when total fundraising figures were first tallied for the event, it is estimated that over £200 million ($412 million) has been raised for charities world-wide with 76% of competitors running for a cause close to their hearts.


“The NSPCC has helped me make the fundraising process exceptionally easy.  I set up a web site – www.justgiving.com/sarahchase1 - and this has proven to be the most efficient, easy and secure way to sponsor me.  Plus, the NSPCC receives donations much faster.”  Chase has set a fundraising goal of £3000 (roughly $6000). 

To meet her goal, Chase has also come up with a fun scheme that she hopes might interest at least major donor.  “For a £2,000 ($4,000) corporate donation to NSPCC I will actually be willing to have one ‘reasonably sized’ corporate logo tattooed on my right leg, which will be visible during the marathon.” 


If you would like to donate to Chase’s efforts, please visit: www.justgiving.com/sarahchase1 or e-mail her directly at: chasesa@earthlink.net.  Kent has always been such a supportive, active and involved community and it’s this Kent spirit that keeps me going!” 


Sarah Chase lives in the Crouch End section of North London with her husband.  She has been working as the head of PR for a maritime public relations firm for the past year.  Her husband, William Watts is the European Economics reporter for MarketWatch.com.  Sarah is a Kent native.  Her parents, Andy and Karen Chase, live on Macedonia Road.

Ken '96 & Hillery '96 (Bullard) Nelson's son Hayden

Posted By Duane Verner, Monday, November 3, 2008
Hillery '96 (Bullard) & Ken Nelson's (96) son Hayden was diagnosed with a very rare disease called HLH a few days after his 6th birthday. He has spent the last 40 days in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of the Cleveland Clinic. Doctors continue to try and treat Hayden's disease and the host of infections that have developed as a result of a weakened immune system.
Friends of Hillery and Ken have formed a website for Hayden, to keep friends and family updated on his condition. Here is the link: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/haydennelson.
We have also formed a fund raising organization, "Hayden's Lil Helpers", to raise funds and help defray some of the hospital expenses being incurred. If you are interested in Donating to Hayden's fund, you can do so by clicking the Paypal link (also found through the Link tab in the caringbridge web site):
If you would rather mail a donation, it can be mailed to:
Key Bank

32000 Walker Road
Avon Lake, OH 44012
Make checks payable to: Hayden's Lil' Helpers
Many of you went to Hiram College with Hillery and Ken, if you could forward this email to other friends I may have missed, I would appreciate it.

There are two fundraising events taking place soon, one in Avon Lake (at The Huddle on Nov. 14th) and a Spaghetti Dinner in North Ridgeville (Nov 8th 4-9pm) at the American Legion. I will send a separate email with details for both of these events.

Biology update

Posted By Lawrence E. Hurd, Friday, September 26, 2008

I have stepped down from being Head of Biology at Washington & Lee

University for the past 15 years, and was awarded an endowed chair, the

John T. Herwick, M.D. Professor of Biology. I have begun a research

collaboration with scientists in Brazil to study the interaction between

human settlements along the Amazon and biological diversity in the

adjacent river and forest ecosystems. This means that I have had to

work hard at learning Portuguese, which would amuse my German and

Spanish professors back at Hiram. I am Editor-in-Chief of the Annals of

the Entomological Society of America. I have no plans to retire in the

near future.
