First Wayne College Grad Remembered in Meaningful Way
The University of Akron Wayne College Alumni Association remembered one its own recently with a bench on Wagstaff Way in the memory of Karl Stroh, the College’s first graduate. Stroh passed away in 2014.
The bench was dedicated in a ceremony attended by Stroh’s wife of 55 years, their children and grandchildren, and many friends of the College. Located near the Student Life Building, it provides a restful place to enjoy an extended view of the campus; a campus that Karl cared deeply about and where he served as a charter member of the Wayne College Alumni Association, including as chairman.
