Class of 2016 Alum Joins Boards

Alumni News

Todd Kamenash recently joined the board of directors of Main Street Kent and Habitat for Humanity of Portage County.  Kamenash was approved to serve on the Main Street Kent board in July and the Habitat board in August.  He is also in training to be a Cub Scout Master for Troop 3551 in Ravenna. 

            “In 20 years as an adult post-college, I’ve prioritized my family first, job second, and everything else a distant third,” Kamenash said.  However, he now recognizes that community service can contribute to his overall quality of life.  “When I began getting involved in the community, I began to realize that I could enhance my top priorities by meeting new people, trying new things, and expanding my horizons.”
          Kamenash is the Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Student Conduct at Kent State University.  He completed the Leadership Portage County program in May of this year.  In June, along with his Leadership classmates, Todd helped to construct a new path for volunteer dog walkers at the Portage County Dog Warden’s facility.  Class members identified the need and selected the task as their class project after visiting the facility earlier in the program year.
           Personal satisfaction as well as service to others drives Kamenash’s community involvement.  “It has made me a better person, father, husband, and citizen,” Kamenash said
