Beverly Warren’s Day Off

Words by Neville Hardman | Photos by Jacqueline Stofsick

In the first issue of The Burr Magazine, photographers took a cardboard cutout of “a rather curious gentleman wearing a tuxedo” around the city of Kent in a photo essay called “Meet the Pres.” This man was Michael Schwartz, the ninth president of Kent State University. To pay homage to the first issue, The Burr recreated this story with Kent State’s current president, Beverly Warren. President Warren was taken through the day of a typical Kent State student. From wind gusts gliding over her strangely stiff hair as she crossed the K to frappuccino runs at Starbucks, Warren experienced it all—undeniably.
