Springers celebrate 37th together

Barb & Bob Springer
Bob Springer and Barbara J. Hipsman Springer observed their 37th wedding anniversary today (Thursday, September 1).

At least this time they are together for their anniversary. Bob spent his 35th wedding anniversary to Barbara Hipsman Springer in Portland, Oregon helping daughter Anna move from St. Charles, Illinois while Barb stayed behind. That was in 2014.

Daughter Kyla already was in Portland and Ann joined her sister. Kyla went to Nepal in 2015 to help victims of that country’s worst earthquake in 80 years. 

Barb retired in 2013 after 26 years in Journalism and Mass Communication at Kent State. 

Bob came to Kent State in 2008 as an academic adviser after 19 years at the Beacon Journal as a copy editor, reporter and, for his final 14 years there, as the Op-ed editor and member of the editorial board. He also retired from Kent State.
He is a Southern Illinois journalism graduate who also worked at the Rocky Mountain News, the Denver Post and the weekly Center (Colorado) Post-Dispatch.
