Tara Kerscher PhotoHi, my name is Tara Kerscher and I am the Newspapers in Education Coordinator for the Akron Beacon Journal. I was born in Akron and have been a life-ling resident! Currently, I reside in Uniontown with my husband and three beautiful children.

I graduated from Kent State University in May of 1999 with a Bachelor's degree in English. I started working at the Akron Beacon Journal in the fall of 1999 in the Advertising department and moved into the Circulation department in the spring of 2003.

I am excited to be a part of the Akron Beacon Journal NIE program where I can continue to be involved in our community and provide resources to teachers, students and families. The goal of the Newspaper in Education program is to promote literacy and citizenship in the community and increase "family reading time" as well. As a mother of three, I believe that is a great goal to strive for!

Please contact me if I can help you in any way!

Best wishes,
