State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today announced over $360,000 in state funds to Kent State University (KSU) for safety upgrades to Rockwell Hall on the main campus, which houses KSU’s award-winning School of Fashion Design and Merchandising.

“This project highlights Kent State’s dedication to the safety and peace of mind of its campus community,” said Rep. Clyde. “By investing in campus infrastructure, Kent is positioning itself to remain the preeminent university in the region.”

Safety upgrades include an overhaul to the 90-year-old facility’s aging fire alarm system, which will bring the facility up to code. The new system would be able to interface with the building museum's pre-action system to better protect priceless artifacts as well as the students, faculty and visitors who use the facility.

Rep. Clyde represents the 75th Ohio House District, serving Kent, Ravenna, Streetsboro, and central and southern Portage County.
