Kevin Easley reflects Clarion University of Pennsylvania’s core values of learning, accomplishment, encouragement, diversity, civility, civic engagement and public higher education. He’s worked as a teaching assistant and orientation leader for incoming students, community assistant at his housing complex and dispatcher for Public Safety.
As a senior, he’s polishing his resume for applications to graduate programs in screenwriting and directing. He recently ended two years with the Clarion University Activities Board to work with campus radio, where he plans to develop his own show about movies. And he’s script supervisor for the Clarion Short Film Club, which he co-founded.
The Philadelphia native chose Clarion University to experience a different lifestyle, explore new settings and meet different people. Clarion also met his criteria of being academically challenging. He earned a PASSHE Board of Governors Scholarship in his sophomore year.
Involvement in campus activities is as much a part of his education as his class work. “It bettered my communication skills, improved my leadership, strengthened my ambition and made me a well-rounded person,” he said.
He takes pride in helping incoming students, and in the two years of homecoming events he planned as UAB special events chair. “When I ride down Main Street (during the Autumn Leaf Festival Parade), I see so many smiling faces and the hard work that has paid off. It’s a great feeling,” he said.
