KENT, Ohio (WKBN) – A memorial is planned Monday marking 45 years since the deadly shootings by National Guardsmen at Kent State University.
Kent State was the scene of Vietnam War protests May 4, 1970, when the Ohio National Guard opened fire on students. Four students were killed; nine others wounded.
One of those killed was a Boardman native Sandy Scheuer.
The main campus hosts events every year to remember the tragic event.
Events begin Monday at Noon at the KSU Commons. Keynote speaker for the event is activist and author Dick Gregory.
