"But what of his work? Shall it end with his death or shall it continue? 
I ask you the question. You know it is sometimes said that the youngest 
child is the most loved of all. Union College was the last and youngest 
of all his works; and so, we think the dearest to his heart. What shall be 
its history? Shall it be dear to us because loved by him? Let me answer 
the question for you, for I think I know your minds in this matter. I say 
no, it shall not die; it shall live and shall continue to grow and shall 
add luster to his name."

In 1879, thirty-five local Barbourvillians purchased 20,000 of capital stock to provide funds for the 
founding of a college. This was done at the urging of Mr. Abraham H. Harritt, a school desk salesman and 
Mr. James T. Gibson, a local dry goods merchant. The formal opening was held over Mr. Gibson's store, 
now the Western Auto Associate Store. Judge James D. Black, who would later become the College's 
fifth president and a Kentucky Governor, gave the opening address. It was he who named the college 
"Union" with the hope that it would serve as a unifying force in the Barbourville community, regardless 
of religious or political beliefs. It was in a room above this store also that the first classes were held until a 
suitable building could be erected. In October 1886, the College became affiliated with the Kentucky 
Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church through the foresight of Daniel Stevenson, a well known 
educator of the period.

The first Administration Building was erected in 
1880. In 1905 fire destoyed this building and 
it was replaced by the new Classroom building. 




The Classroom Building? with its gracious tower, 
was erected in 1907. It is now on the National 
Register of Historic Buildings and is undergoing 
extensive renovation. This is a strong contrast 
to when the classes were held in James T. Gib- 
son's store back in 1870-1880.

Fanny Speed of Louisville, 
Kentucky, wanted the girls 
who attended Union College 
to live in a warm, home- like 
atmosphere. With this in 
mind, Speed Hall was built 
in 1905 with no expenses 
spared to insure the girls ' 
comfort.

Pictured at the Centennial Banquet is the 197& recipients 
of the Colonel Harland Sanders Honor Scholarship. To Colo- 
nel Sanders and many others, Union College owes an im- 
mense debt of gratitude. Through the scholarships and oth- 
er gifts offered by these wonderful people, count less stu- 
dents have been able to complete their education who 
might otherwise have been unable tc> attend. 



In preparing the Centennial Section, I have discovered much 
to be proud of as a member of the Union College Community. 
The 100 years history of service of quality Christian Ed- 
ucation is an enviable one. I gratefully acknowledge the 
help of Mr. Milton Townsend for his guidance and good will 
and the special help of Janet Rose.

Union College was founded the year Albert Einstein was born, 1879. Both had obscure, 
unpretentious beginnings. Although told as a young student that he would never amount to anything, 
Einstein in his lifetime achieved universal acclaim for his insights into the nature of the physical world. 
Because of his stature as an intellectual, his voice was heard in high places when he spoke on social issues. 

Similarly, although Union is still a small college and is likely to remain such, its humble beginnings 
and early failure were hardly an obvious precursor of the college as it is today. It was founded by citizens 
of a tiny Eastern Kentucky town and the immediately surrounding rural community who were 
determined to provide for the educational needs of local youth. But bankruptcy was not far away and the 
college was sold at public auction in 1886. Immediately, however, it began a new under the auspices of 
what was then the Methodist Episcopal Church. Now, as this is being written, a group of foreign 
graduate students, young educators on leave from their positions in the Ministry of Education and the 
public schools of Liberia, are high over the Atlantic ocean, flying back to their African homeland after 
earning Masters Degrees at Union College. As the college matured through the years it attained 
recognized academic stature, and grew in size and scope to become a respected institution with a 
substantial graduate program. Its influence is now felt in distant places, a role that doubtless far exceeds 
the exemplary vision of its founders. 

Union College has changed dramatically through the years in keeping with the changes in the society 
around it. As it moves into Century II, it does so with a continuing commitment to academic quality and 
community service, its goals based on Christian principles, Academic integrity and societal needs. Now, 
as in the past, Union College seeks to nurture dedication to Christian ideals and sound learning from 
which will emerge creative intellectual activity and spiritual qualities that foster breadth of 
understanding and the love of all people. While the commitment to academic quality remains 
unchanging, the academic program itself changes and can be expected to continue changing. Thes 
changes are a necessary response of the college to the expansion of human knowledge and the 
modification of the priorities and the needs of society. The challenge is to effectively serve by making the 
right changes at the right time. 

A Centennial celebration is a time for reflection as well as for anticipation. We need to ponder our 
heritage, giving thanks for the contributions of so many. Union's friends have been legion and much 
support has been at the level of sacrifice. Others will follow during the years ahead — friends, 
benefactors, and those loyal in their labors. Perhaps the greatest support of all will be from someone in 
this Centennial graduating class. 

It is a privilege and joy to salute the Centennial Class. Many people have worked hard to contribute 
to the fulfillment of your educational, religious, and social needs. The faculty and staff are proud of you, 
and we hope you have been pleased with us. All graduates and continuing students have our very best 
wishes. For my part, I assure you that Union College moves into Century II firmly committed to 
continuing as a Christ-directed enabling influence in the lives of rising generations.

**'V" 



THE ONE HUNDREDTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE 
FOUNDING OF UNION COLLEGE IS A MILESTONE OF 
GREAT IMPORTANCE IN AMERICAN EDUCATION 

AN INDEPENDENT PRIVATE COLLEGE CREATED FOR 
AND DEVOTED TO THE EDUCATION OF ALL AMERICANS- 
REGARDLESS OF CLASS COLOR OR RELIGIOUS 
PERSUASION— UNION COLLEGE HAS AN ADMIRABLE 
TRADITION OF PUBLIC SERVICE 

ITS GRADUATES CONTINUE TO STRENGTHEN THE 
COMMUNITIES IN WHICH THEY LIVE AND WORK WITH THE 
TIMELESS PRINCIPLES AND VALUES THEY ACQUIRED

Philip Vacanarat Saywrayne 
March 24, 1936 March 30, 1979 



IN MEMORIAM 

Phillip Saywrayne, a graduate student from Liberia, died on 
March 30, 1979. Phillip was widely known throughout the 
Barbourville community and on -the Union College campus. He 
was a quiet, friendly man who always wore a smile. 

Phillip was the author of Anthology of Original Poems , 
Poetry and Speeches , Folk Tales of Liberia and a manuscript 
entitled Saywrayne on African Culture. 



People who were touched even briefly by Phillip Saywrayne' s 
friendly, thoughtful presence regret that he has passed so 
suddenly from us.

The Lighthouse Singers are a voluntary group of Christian students from various denominations who 
visit churches and colleges to sing and share their faith in Jesus Christ. 

This year, the Lighthouse Singers were invited all over the state of Kentucky to share their lives with 
others. They provided worship through song for some congregation almost every weekend of the school 
year. A lot of moaning, groaning and complaining seemed to go on, but every singer braved Rev. Gibson's 
driving, the winding hills of Kentucky and the many self-sacrifices to find new meaning in their lives.

ORANGE AND BLACK 



This year the Orange and Black had two editors. During the fall semester, Dena Newman headed the 
publication and Kathy Giles took over in the spring. The Orange and Black provided students with 
articles on events happening in and around the campus community. The articles were written by both 
students and faculty members. Artist Charlie Akins and photographer Steve Rose added their talents to 
round off the newspaper material. 




Pi Upsilon Beta had a good year of fellowship and brotherhood. Although this year was a slow year for 
activities, the brotherhood of the organization grew closer together under the leadership of president 
Rick Hill, vice-president Earl Grover, secretary Arnie Bradway, treasurer Dave Pease and advisor Larry 
Inkster. PUB had a small pledge class of four in the fall semester, but pledges and members all had a 
good time and the.size of the fraternity increased by four. 

The major spring activity was a slave sale which raised money for a few of PUB's favorite activities, 
PARTIES! The end of the year meant the loss of four members due to graduation, but the remaining 
members wish their brothers luck and success in future endeavors.

SIGMA CHI 



Sigma Chi Delta is a social and service organization open to all girls 
through a two week pledge period. The main goal of the organization is to 
promote unity and sisterhood within the sorority and to spread that feel 
-ing throughout the campus with their projects. 

Sigma Chi Delta celebrated her first birthday this spring with 15 mem — 
bers. The girls were quite busy this year sponsoring dances, bakesales , 
hot dog sales, and an ice cream social. The girls also helped with the 
Special Olympics, served at the Homecoming Banquet, placed second in the 
Centennial Exhibit Contest, had two pledge classes, held a worker-for-a- 
day sale and bought their first jackets. 

This active group was sponsored by Gayna Akillian and Dick Glasser. 




SNEA 



S.N.E.A. - Alive and WeU at Union 
This year the student National Education Association of Union College participated in many campus 
functions as well as in state association events. 

On Campus, S.N.E.A. held monthly meetings at which speakers from on and off campus discussed issues 
that are facing the educators of today. The organization also participated in functions that had a special 
emphasis on education such as a special chapel service for education majors that was conducted by 
S.N.E.A. And the group helped host the Upper Cumberland Valley Teacher's Associational Conference. 
At Honor's Day S.N.E.A. presented an award to a senior member that had exhibited a true dedication 
toward education. Off campus, the Union College Chapter of S.N.E.A. participated in state association 
events such as the Fall Leadership Conference, the State Convention, and meetings of both the state 
Executive Committee and the State Task Force Committee. All in all S.N.E.A. at Union College is alive 
and well and is expecting another great year of activities!

Bringing back an all but forgotten tradition, Student Center Board sponsored Snowball King and Queen 
elections for the Snowball Dance. Each campus organization was given the opportunity to nominate one 
male and one female to represent them in the court of candidates. The penny-a-vote elections were held 
the week prior to the dance. When the counting was complete, Sigma Chi Delta representatives Brad 
Thompson and Emmy Taylor emerged as victors. The other candidates were Becky Houghton and Aaron 
Works representing Phi Mu Alpha, Melissa Boswell and Mike Brothers for Circle K, Rita Bryan and Don 
Jones for Eta Pi Sigma, and Dena Newman and Bob Beck representing the Orange and Black. 




MOB 



Mu Omega Beta, sponsored by Dr. Lester Woody, is a social fraternity dedicated to life-long friendship, 
brotherhood and service to the community. The members of MOB helped with the activities at Parents' 
Weekend and participated in the Daniel Boone Festival. As a money-raising project in order to buy new 
shirts, and also as a campus and community service, MOB members sold ads which were printed on desk 
blotters. The desk blotters were given away throughout the campus and the community. The members of 
MOB also sponsored several parties and dances for their fellow students, plus a few private parties!

us. Circle K sponsored community-oriented activities such 
as a Christmas party and Easter party for the children of 
the Pentecostal Children's Home and a Walk-a-thon for 
Cystic Fibrosis. They also contrbuted to campus enhance- 
ment by painting lines on the DAC parking lot.

The main activity sponsored by Playlikers was a night full of 
"gambling and drink" called Monte Carlo Night. No real money 
was used, but the gambler in all of us was brought out as we 
attempted to win as much as possible! Refreshments were de - 
voured and a disco dance, put on by Union's own Ron Harrison 
added color to the evening. 

The small crew of workers, who were headed by Allan Green, had 
almost more than they could handle. However, at the end of 
the evening the completely exhausted crew had another success- 
ful Monte Carlo Night to their credit.

FROM THE COACHES 
COACH POOLE: 

The women's volleyball team, beset with youth and inexperience, managed 
only a 1-10 record during the fall. 

First-year coach Anjela Poole says that "Volleyball requires that the 
six players on the court must know and fullfill their responsibilities. 
We lacked this ability because the players are young and have not play- 
ed together before." 

Coach Poole was impressed with beginning players Teresa Guth, Isabelle 
Spriggs , Lori Rodriguez and Sandy Hall who she said were "willing to hit 
the floor and get the ball. "Senior Barb Fleming was cited as the team's 
best spiker by Coach Poole. She will be the only member of the 1978-79 
team not returning. 

An experienced squad will return to the volleyball court in the fall in 
an attempt to better last season's record. 



Like the women's volleyball team, the basketball team, also coached 
by Aniela Poole, is losing only one senior. That senior is the same 
one that the volleyball team will be missing, Barb Fleming. 
The 1978-79 team finished at 8-10 despite youth and inexperience 
Coach Poole said that the team relied on quickness and excellent 
outside shooting to win those eight games. 

Coach Poole added that things look great for next year because of 
the large number of returning players and the fact that the new 
players this year responded well to inheriting leadership from the 
veterns. 



COACH MOORE 



Union College basketball fans will have an interesting team to watch next season because the 1978- 
79 squad lost no players to graduation. In fact, only one player, Durkee Davidson, will be a senior. 

The last squad posted a 9-19 record which Coach Pete Moore felt could have been improved upon 
with better defense. "Inexperience was the key factor in the weakness of our defensive game," he said. 

Coach Moore was especially pleased with the Bulldogs' offensive output of 80 points a game. He 
credits accurate shooting as the reason Union is such a high-scoring team. 

Overall, Coach Moore feels that rebounding is where Union improved most over the season. "We 
began to work together as a team under the boards as the season progressed," he said. 

Forward Durkee Davidson was named a member of the All-KIAC team and the All-NAIA District 
32 team. 

The Bulldogs made a long winter trip to Salina, Kansas, in January to play in the Marymount- 
McDonald Classic. Union emerged from the round-robin tourney with a 1-2 record. 

Coach Moore is confident that the coming year will be as successful as possible with a still-young 
team. "We must improve our defense considerably before we will do much better," he says. "We should 
begin the year with more confidence since the team has played a full year together." 

Coach Moore hopes that Union will be able to dominate some games while relying on the potent 
offense. "I think we will continue to score well and I hope that our rebounding will improve to where we 
can dominate a few teams." 



COACH BOGGS 



Although the tennis team had a number of experienced players in its ranks, the squad was not able to win 
a match all year against the tough competition in the conference and in the districts. First-year coach 
Sharon Boggs, a Barbourville resident, took over a team that was counting on three seniors. Charlie 
Yazell, Mike Goss, and Ron Harrison, one-two-three on the team respective were not able to yield the 
kind of year expected of them. The most successful of the three was Yazell, winning two singles matches 
and one doubles match over the year. 



COACH RAQUET 



The internationally popular sport of soccer has been recognized as a varsity sport at Union College, 
but the school's players have been practicing and playing patiently for quite a while in anticipation of the 
moment. 

Ed Raquet, who worked for Union in the computer science department before leaving the campus 
during the spring, coached the soccer team through its last season as a "club" sport in the fall. It was the 
best season to date for the Bulldogs, who posted a 2-6-1 won-loss-tie record. 

Coach Raquet noted that the team's strength lies in determination, enthusiasm and hustle. "The 
defense had periods of greatness," he said. "However, as with most young and inexperienced teams, we 
had trouble generating any offense." 

The high point of the season for the Bulldogs was a crafty 2-1 victory over Georgetown that saw 
Union put together a strong defensive and offensive game. "With every game we seemed to improve and 
develop better ballhandling skills," Coach Raquet stated. "We were able to put it all together at 
Georgetown." 

The Union squad is a member of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Soccer Association. At the 9th 
Annual KISA tournament late in the fall at Berea College, the Bulldogs were beaten twice. The Western 
Kentucky Hilltoppers topped Union 5-0 in the first round. The Cumberland College Indians, victims of 
the Bulldogs earlier in the season, won the consolation round over the Union team 3-2. 

All-KISA fullback David Pease of Summit, New Jersey, and All-KISA halfback Tom "J.C." Lawson 
were the strongholds of the team. Lawson and halfback Ron Harrison of Englishtown, New Jersey, are 
lost to the team due to graduation. 

Fullback Carl Castell, Bloomfield, Kentucky, forward Basaam Tabeekh, Tehran, Iran, and halfback 
Andy Woodward of Lexington, Kentucky, will not be on next year's team because they are transferring. 

Coach Raquet feels that the prospects are good for next year when Larry Inkster, instructor of 
physical education and Union's championship baseball team coach, will take over the helm. Dr. Judi 
Jennings, instructor of history at Union, organized the team for practice games in the spring. 

Coach Raquet says that special thanks should be given Dr. Jean Shelton of Dallas, Texas, the 
founder and patron of the team. Without her support, soccer could not have existed as a club sport on the 
Union College campus.

Five candidates were nominated for the Athlete of the Year Award at the annual Union College 
Sports Banquet held at Dishman Springs Monday, May 14, with Henry Wayne Steele, Lexington, 
winning the top honors. 

Steele a member of the Union College baseball team for four years and has had a batting average 
over 300 for each season, Larry Inkster, the baseball coach, called Steele a strong defensive player who in 
the catcher position made him a leader of the team. The winner has led the team in hitting for two 
consecutive years. 

The winner of the Danny Drinkard Award which is given to the runner-up for the nomination, went 
to Barbara Fleming of Sergeantsville, N. J., for her participation on this year's volleyball team. "A Union 
College senior, Miss Fleming was the outstanding spiker and most accurate server this season," Anjela 
Kay Poole, women's athletic coach, stated. 

The other nominees included Durkee Davidson, Louisville, Ky., who was co-captain of the Bulldogs 
this past season. Davidson was selected to the ALL-KIAC team, the ALL-NAIA District 32 team, and 
was selected in March to play for the District 32 team, and was selected in March to play for the District 
32 All-Stars against the Mexican National Team, in Berea, Kentucky. Sandy Hale, Lebanon, Ohio, was 
listed as the women's basketball nominee. She played as a 5-6 guard freshman. Miss Poole called Miss 
Hale a person "who can play either guard or forward positions. The fifth nominee was Chrrles Yazeel, 
number one tennis player from Paris, Kentucky. Yazell who is a senior, has had four years of varsity 
action with the Union team. 

Tennis Coach Sharon Boggs called Yazell "a senior whose leadership qualities have been an 
inspiration to the entire team. He is a dedicated player. 

Union College Athletic Director Dr. Pete Moore presided at the banquet with the coaches of the 
varsity sports making the presentations. These included Larry Inkster, baseball; Mike Goss substituting 
for Sharon Boggs for tennis; Anjela Kay Poole, women's basketball and volleyball; and Dr. Pete Moore, 
basketball. Miss Frances Patridge, Chairman of the Division of Applied Sciences, read the 
recommendations for the top sports honor at Union College. 



There is a long history of sports here at Union. 
We thought you would like to look back on some 
of those moments so we dug up some old shots for 
you to look at.

Walstatd in a version of "Happy Talk", Steve Marshall did 
a Steve Martin comedy routine, Dena Newman sang an Anne 
Murray hit, Saudra Bryson and Chris Sutton blended their 
voices on a tune by Heatwave and there was a special

the final round of applause the excitement of the night- 
club style variety show came through with brilliant 
splendor. The show featured the Union College Jazz Ensemble 
with Reva Abner and Brenda Smith serving as M.C.'s.

Steven Rose has always complained 
that because he has always been 
the yearbook photographer, he has 
never had his own picture in any 
of the previous annuals. We would 
like to change that by dedicating 
this entire page to Steve in ap- 
preciation for all his efforts 
for the Stespean.

Editor's Comments 



There are many people who deserve credit for the publication 
of thes 1979 Stespean. First of all thanks go to President 

There are many people who deserve credit for the publication 
of this 1979 Stespean. First of all thanks go to President Mil- 
ler for his support. Also thanks go to Mr. Milt Townsend who 
donated his time and his files of negatives for our use. Thanks 
go to Mary Alice Lay for her contribution of editing the Home- 
coming section and the Alumni Centerfold. Also Thanks go to Dr. 
Jan Finkel for his help. To our advisor, Mrs. Saddler and Becky 
Culp. Thanks go to my assistant editors, Janet Rose and Steven 
Rose. The Section editors were, Donna Dobo and Dave Ditillio , 
Sports jSherrie Hurst, Students; Rita Bryan, Cenntenial Section . 
Thanks go out to all of those who sold the yearbooks especial- 
ly Pat Broadbeck.To my photographer, who turned into a dark- 
room technician, Bob Malone. But I would like to extend a very 
special thank you to Donna Dobo because she helped me more 
than any other single person. Thanks Mom. One last thought, it 
seems like this staff is big. But however big it seems, we never 
have enough help. The editors of any publication never have e- 
nough help. So if the yearbook dosen't seem good enough for you 
than get involved, work on the next one. 

Steven Marshall 
P.S. Thanks to Mike Goss Editor
