Alumni of Distinction
Kent Newhart ‘77

 Kent Newhart '77

Kent Newhart ‘77 describes his life’s journey as “the road less traveled.” Newhart grew up in a town that exemplified the concept of it taking a village to raise a child. His community-minded spirit led him to serve the YMCA, his church, and the LCCC Foundation.

His college career started at the University of Colorado, but he found that skiing, mountain climbing, and skydiving were more to his liking. Once he left the campus, he worked in construction, as a delivery driver, and in the Bethlehem Steel blast furnace, where he learned about the good and the bad sides of unions. Thanks to classes at a community college, the “light bulb went off” for Newhart and he transferred to SUNY Oneonta, where he finished his education.

After a career in public accounting, he opened his own financial firm in 1983. He and his wife have two married daughters and five grandchildren.
