KT Week Volunteers 2019

Kin Takahashi Week 2019

Dear KTers,

With the great support of the college administration, the Advancement/Alumni Office, and the Physical Plant Team, 93 KT volunteers performed 1,554 hours of meaningful work to make the Queen of the Highlands more prepared for her 200th Bicentennial Celebration. You completed 21 projects during the three days of June 3-5, 2019 and worked on six key areas in Archives, including:

  • built 10 picnic tables and 6 benches
  • replaced and painted the storage area doors at the baseball field
  • built a strong storage box for sand volley ball equipment
  • built a new custodial mailbox
  • built buggies for storing Cooper floor coverings
  • built a screen for the Bartlett chiller
  • built a lean-to shed for storage of scaffolds
  • replaced Willard House rear ramp lattice
  • installed deck boards on the ramps of the bridge in the college woods
  • built a split rail fence between Gamble parking and the PPD entrance
  • built a paver walk path from Fayerweather parking to Cooper
  • landscaped the circle planter at the football field entrance
  • landscaped the brick area at Pearson’s where the maple tree was removed
  • sanded and stained 100 lap boards
  • straightened, repaired and cleaned traffic signs
  • repainted and lettered eight building signs
  • painted the college cemetery fence
  • touch up painted the wainscoting in Isaac’s.
  • pressure washed the Wright House fence, entrances to Bartlett, Fayerweather, selected dorms, McArthur Pavilion, and the football field seats
  • installed pavers under the Mountain Challenge fitness area
  • archives areas of concentration were the Margaret Henry letters, oral histories, clean and return Senior studies, microfilm (1915-1997), indexing info related to monthlies, and cataloging crypt photographs.

Thanks for all your efforts to accomplish these tasks and “giving back” to Maryville College in the spirit of Kin Takahashi. If not before, I hope to see you at MC Homecoming October 18-20, 2019 as we celebrate the founding of MC 200 years ago on October 19, and we take participant’s pride in the improvements noted above. 

Blessings to You and Yours,


KT Week 2020 dates will be announced soon!
