DAVIDSON, N.C.--Davidson College president John W. Kuykendall has announced
that he will resign his office June 30, 1997, to return to classroom
teaching. Kuykendall, a 1959 Davidson graduate and ordained Presbyterian
minister, became the college's 15th president on Oct. 5, 1984, following 11
years as a member of the Auburn University religion department faculty.
During most years of his Davidson presidency, he has continued to teach one
course per year in either the history of Christianity or his academic
speciality, the history of religion in America.
DUBUQUE, IOWA--The University of Dubuque (UD) Aviation Program has the
latest in navigation technology with the recent installation of a new
$12,000 approach-certified Global Positioning System (GPS) unit in one of
its planes. GPS-equipped planes navigate using satellites instead of
traditional ground-based systems. The unit was purchased by Dr. Thomas
Greenawalt (C'53) for a Cessna 172 that he leases to the UD Aviation
Program. The university will pay for the unit's installation with funds
from a $100,000 gift from Mrs. Ruth Garlick. The gift also funded the
complete renovation of the John and Ruth Garlick Flight Operation Center at
Dubuque Regional Airport.
