Graduation is definitely not the end of student’s relationship with Kent State. It’s the beginning of a whole new kind of connection, and we want to celebrate it with you.

The experiences that our students had during their time with FLASHanthropy and the memories they made on the way to graduation shape their relationship with Kent State University for the rest of their lives.

We are grateful to the young alumni who have chose to contribute their time, talent and energy as members of FLASHanthropy during their time on campus:

Andrew Cappuzzello

Andrew graduated from Kent State in 2015 with a B.S.E in Integrated Math and he is currently pursuing my M.Ed in Higher Education Administration and Student Personnel. He hopes to become an Advancement Officer for major gifts so that he can pay it forward to other students in order for them to achieve and actualize their dreams.

He was integral part in the re-branding of FLASHanthropy as he acted as President and contributed four years to helping Kent State raise scholarship funds through the KSU PhoneCenter and through FLASHanthropy.
