On Wednesday, September 7, 1983, a crowd of students,
faculty, and distinguished guests gathered at the construction site
of the new KTI Technology Center to witness one of the most
profound moments in KTI history, the KTI Technology Center
The weather was beautiful that day as the crowd eagerly looked
on to see Gov. john Carlin be the one honored to turn over the
first shovelful of soil. The moment represented an 18-year-long
.1 dream of KTI founders to transform the grounds of an old, de-
caying Air Force base into a beautiful educational facility.
'lThe Technology Center," said Don Buchwald, Tech Center con-
struction coordinator, uis the first of a four-phase plan to ren-
ovate the campus. lt will be a building that students and alumni
will be very proud of."
Other distinguished guests and KTI staff members were given an
opportunity to turn over a shovelful of soil as well, including Di-
rector of Operational Affairs lim Friesen, Academic Dean Dr.
, Robert Jensen, and Dean of Student Services Herb Petracek.
1. Governor Carlin jests with President Creech as Creech finds a soft spot in the ground.
2. President Creech: ult wasn't the words spoken from the platform that mattered so much . . . those present will remember the spirit of the
occasion. The enthusiasm of those distinguished guests will never be forgotten."
3. Kansas Governor lohn Carlin gets a long round of applause as he is honored by turning over the first shovelful of soil. Carlin later spoke to a
receptive KTI audience at the Groundbreaking banquet held immediately after the ceremony.

The Student Activities Council, headed by Student Activities

and fun to the campus of KTI. Despite encountering numer-
ous obstacles throughout the course of the year, SAC did
an outstanding job in conjuring up singers, entertainers,
comedians, a skating party, and popular movies to entertain
the student body.
SAC brought to KTI such collegiate entertainers as Dave
Rudpolph, Tim Cavanaugh, and Duncan Tuck, all of which
knew how to please an active KTI crowd.
SAC also organized a successful skating party which was
held at the Starlight Skating Rink. Over 100 people attended
the event, including faculty members as well as students,
making it one of the most successful social activities SAC
Toward the end of the year SAC also produced the Spring
Semi-Formal, and the highly successful Spring Olympics held
every year at the Kanopolis Reservoir. The event included
roast pig, games, swimming, volleyball, a dance, and lots of
beverage for everyone. Students, faculty, and staff all
enjoyed the fun, good times, and fellowship, proving it to
be SAC's most successful event of the year.
