As part of the history project within the College, faculty and staff shared some of their memories…

Sometime in the 1980s, in an attempt to allay mass symptoms of winter blues among the faculty, Bob Baker and Marv Thompson invented a gourd rolling contest and organized a college-wide event.  Marv even donned a striped referee’s shirt to officiate the event.  Contestants were to roll a gourd as far as they could in a straight line, challenged of course by the slightly curved stems of the gourds.

Unfortunately, no one could recall the winner of this event!
