This is an honor and a milestone in the development of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Institute. It recognizes the outstanding contribution which you and the members of your professional team have made to the development of education. I am proud to be associated with the community college system of which Asheville- Buncombe is an important part. Sincerely, Dewey A. Adams Associate Professor 4 At a meeting of students and staff on December 5, 1969, President Simpson stated, “The most significant recognition accorded Asheville- Buncombe Technical Institute occured last Wednesday when the Institute was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools . . .” Left to right (seated): J.

(_ ' zoom 6 We the 1970 annual staff do hereby dedicate our yearbook to Mr. Richard D. Croom. Mr. Croom has given much to Asheville Buncombe Technical Institute, not only through excellent in- struction and leadership, but through unselfish con- tributions of his energy and free time. Mr. Croom has been a friend to all students and has been an inspira- tion to those who know him. Some of his efforts include: Supporting student interest in athletics, being our leading cartoonist, in- volvement in the Miss Asheville Tech contest, and providing leadership for students and staff. This dedication is made with pride and sincere thanks to one who has meant and means much to our institution, Mr. Richard D. Croom. 7 {ELzctio) 2 69 (r i nu| Officers, Left to right: Barbara Burris, Treasurer; Lawson Summerrow, President; Roger Mason, Vice-President; Joy Taylor, Secretary. STUDENT ADVISORY COUNCIL The Student Advisory Council is the “voice” of the students at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Institute. Membership in the Council is comprised of one representative and one alternate from each curriculum area elected in October each year. Students are urged to maintain close contact with the Council and to feel free to initiate activities or other matters of common interest through the Council. The Faculty Committee for Student Activities works closely with the Student Advisory Council in all matters pertaining to the Council and student activities. The officers of the Council, president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, are elected by a popular vote. Candidates must have a petition containing signatures of 35 full-time students prior to declaring their candidacy. Officers for 1969—1970 were elected by the Student Body during the sixth week of the Fall Quarter. They were as follows: President, Lawson Summerrow, a student in Tool and Die Making; Vice-President, Roger Mason, a second-year Data Processing student; Secretary, Joy Taylor, a second-year Secretarial Science student; and Treasurer, Barbara Burris, a second-year Data Processing student. Mrs. Mary Louise Carpenter, Faculty Sponsor, is present at all Student Ad- visory Council meetings. Each candidate running for a particular office made speeches prior to the election to the Student Body as to what they hoped to accomplish if elected. 9 Mrs. Mary S. Carpenter came to A-B Tech as a guidance counselor. In addition to her regular work of helping students to get the most out of their stay at this institution, she acts as the faculty sponsor of the Student Advisory Council. Although this is Mrs. Car- penter’s first year at A-B Tech, she has be- come deeply involved in student activities, an area in which she is vitally interested. Mrs. Mary S.

The Faculty Committee for Student Activities is comprised of members of the faculty representing all divisions of the Institute. This group is the one with whom the Student Advisory Council has the most contact. This Committee initiates or promotes activities or special programs designed primarily to enrich school life of the student body. It establishes a procedure for granting official college sanction to student organizations. Approve or disapprove re- quests for the establishment of new organizations. The group works with student leaders to develop an effective student activi- ties organization. The faculty committee recommends policies on the distribution of student activity funds. Through their leadership, the Committee helps to develop an adequate and meaningful Student Activities program. 13 14 Miss Joy Taylor Secretarial Science II 15 4-B Miss Sandra Ponder Data Processing I Miss Donna Rhew Secretarial Science I 16 Miss Kay Tritt Data Processing II Miss Cathy Buchanan Data Processing I Miss Barbara Burris Data Processing II • Miss Linda Blevins Practical Nursing Education {d.nzuiiit’ia.tujz (L LC£.Z± Brewster Adams Dean of Evening Programs K.

The Institute Forum was organized at the beginning of the current school year primarily to improve internal communications. The Forum is composed of one member each from the Administrative Council, the Student Council, the Division Directors, and from each of the instructional divisions as well as a representative from the supporting personnel. It was anticipated that the Forum would consider and act upon those matters of a general nature affecting the Institute. Albert W.

The programmed text, with its for- mat of information, questions, and answers does the teaching. Each question takes the student one step further, and each time his understanding grows. The Learning Laboratory has four basic objectives: to give students at Asheville-Buncombe Tech a source of materials which can supplement any of their regular course work; to give pre- vocational and pre-technical students a de- velopmental program in science, math- ematics, and English before entering a regular curriculum; to assist individuals in their preparation for the High School equivalency Examination; to provide an opportunity for the general public to in- crease their vocational and academic po- tential. 27 29 nzic at 1 IzchnoL czSzniozi o aa Rebecca Atkins Ruth Chandley Brenda Guy Michael Moore 30 uzs.zzuzq 1 IzcluzoLo w Rudy Carson Michael Evans Marshall Fields Douglas Jones Richard Joyce Jonathan Phillips David Hickerson David Hutchins Wayne Orr 31 a id. 9b EXLCm 9 noLo 99 Dennis Hipps Daniel McGraw Michael O’Conner James Owen Wayne Parris Ronald Ray Gerald Sawyer Patsy Sherlin Henry Whitmire Robert Whitted 32 [j zaftincj ci zcl ( 7 schnoio , Allan Culberson Cortez Freeman Larry Reece David Reed William Reese WiUiam Sheppard Elmer Suttles 33 Elect ZOULCi. s ZJ2LOZ1 Jacinto Batista Kenny Coggins Steve Cox Larry Fortner Ibid ' i Ja 1 ' ll Ain Albert Hansen Jerry Joyner Daniel Kimball Smith Lingerfelt Edward Osteen Q, unioz± Maynard Bennett Richard Marlowe Doyle Matney David Redmond Michael Roberts Tony Stamey William Stroupe Surendra Ashar Roger Wyatt 34 £[zct zoned ' iaht David Allen James Causey Douglas Coggins Edward Dalton Richard Davis Bruce Dycus William Hembree George Lawrence Kirby McLamb Wayne Morgan Gary Odom 35 3ndu±tzLaL ncjLnzzzinq zulois.

Those Thursday’s gourmets.” Remembrances — Before the end of the first quarter we fed the Board of Trustees. By the close of the first year, we had fed the policemen’s training school, the faculty and staff, V. I. P.’s from Community Colleges and a Banquet to Miss A-B Tech. Summer brought callouses, headaches, tears, expe- riences, and . . . money. Madelaine was the manager of Mt. Valley Golf Club; Phil was second cook on the evening shift at The Grove Park Inn; and Mike as- sisted in baking and catering at Rollin Pin Bakery. Great to be back in September for production. We ran the show in the back of the house by planning the menu, purchasing the food, supervising the produc- tion, serving and costing the cafeteria campus bill of fare. Our spring vacations - both years - were spent at the Restaurant Show in Charlotte with remem- brances of roast suckling pig, marzipan, tallow work, and bread weaving. Before we close we would like to thank Mr. Cox, Mr. Werth,Mrs. Cooley, Mr. Wright, Mr. Johnsson, and Mr. Phelps in our department and Mr. Reynolds, Mr. Wolfe, Mrs. Cox, Mr. Welch, and Mr. Freeman for their patience, encouragement and guidance. Most Most Sincerely, 74 75 The Dream In the early formative years of Asheville Buncombe Technical Institute, one of the fondest dreams of its progressive administration was to see a. time when the institute might supply Western North Carolina and the entire state with capable, well trained personnel in one of Norfjh Carolina ' s most valuable professions ... the Hospitality Industry 11 _ f yj jjgjjjg With the welcome and needed support of the State ok North Carolina, the North Carolina Hospitality Industry, and Buncombe County, the year 1966 saw construction begin on the state ' s first Hospitality Education Complex, part of which is now known as " Mountain Tech Lodge " . In early 1969, " Mountain Tech Lodge " - opened its doors for the first time; its operational systems designed by its own students, and equipped with the latest styles of furniture, equipment, and supplies, tor the most part donated by hospitality industry manufacturers of North Carolina andy surrounding states. ‘ " • , Thus, what had been the cherished dream of a few, had for all, ... .a Reality ' J ZLijtincj Jbtucients . Q-oin Nine drafting and design technology students at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Institute have been voted into membership of the Engineers Society of Western North Carolina, Inc. by the board of directors. As student members of the society, an opportunity is provided for the youths to associate with professionals and learn more about the field of engineering.

Under the direction and guidance of the National Secretaries Association and the supervision of Mrs. Sara M. Morris, faculty advisor. The Mountain Tech Chapter of the Future Secretaries Association was chartered in March of 1969. The first FSA President was Miss Jo Lynn McDuffie, Class of 1969. The purpose of the Chapter is to engender interest in the secretarial field and to encourage continuing education through association with those engaged in the secretarial profession. Membership is open to Secretarial Science students who have a “C” or better average. In addition, these students must be of high character and integrity. In its two years FSA has been the only student, campus-based organization. In 1969 FSA sponsored an orientation get together and a Christmas coffee for the student body. The members of FSA hope to continue to work with the student body to help provide both social and academic momentum for the Institute. The Mountain Tech Chapter of FSA will continue to en- courage professional growth and awareness in those students aspiring to enter the secretarial profession at a high level of proficiency. 79 Now, about that time I took those girls grouse hunting . . .

The intramural sports program at Asheville-Tech was given a boost when a student activity fee was charged for the first time this year. This fee should enable the school to offer more activities and upgrade the programs already in progress. For the first time a rag-tag football tournament is being held this year with 10 teams participating. Last year’s basketball tournament was played by 16 teams with Data Processing winning for the second year in a row. A volleyball tournament is also held in the spring of each year, and Civil Technology came away the winners for the first tournament. It is hoped that in the near future Asheville Tech may be able to field an intercollegiate team in several sports to compete with other technical institutes and community colleges in the North Carolina Com- munity College system. 84 85 aAuation Charge!!!
