Kent State's Early Childhood Felony Center

Posted By on Thu, Feb 1, 2007 at 12:39 PM

Two weeks ago Paul H. Jones, the former mayor of Ravenna, was convicted on federal felony charges for failure to pay income taxes. This didn't please many people, especially Kent administrators who'd (oops) named their childhood development center in Jones' honor.

The building's new name: the Kent State University Childhood Development Center. -- Rebecca Meiser
