The Kirkland College Pioneers


 The Kirkland Pioneers Poster Project

The diversity of the Kirkland cohort is best illuminated through personal narratives. Long after our college closed her doors; our history remains compelling to current students, their parents, faculty members and those interested in the education of women.

The Kirkland Pioneers Project helps gather short reflections (and longer curriculum vitae/resumes for the Kirkland Archives) paired with past and current imagery. The project fosters a greater understanding of who we are and how we changed College Hill.  It highlights the range of career and life choices we made, offering a glimpse into our collective pioneer spirit.

When the poster project was first displayed in 2012, it was received with great enthusiasm. That demonstrated the importance of gathering as many posters as we can to help preserve the larger Kirkland story. In 2022, the posters will be prominently displayed on the Kirkland Campus. Later, the collection (and the resumes) will be permanently housed in the K.C. Archives at the Burke Library.

That's where you come in. We encourage your personal submission and your encouragement of others to participate.  (You may attach a longer resume for the archival portion of the project).

Your 50-word submission might reflect why you chose Kirkland, how the experience changed you or continues to influence your choices, or it might include a memory.  It may also include your current profession, awards, honors, degrees, community service, family, and your website. The choice is yours.

Be as creative as you wish. This can be a stream of consciousness, a Haiku, or traditional listing. Please take a moment to complete the digital form and send a recent jpg photo to kirklandpioneers@gmail.com.  Please visit our Pioneers archive page to see past submissions.

Once you are ready to submit, please use the digital form

Please remember to attach a current photo. The deadline is January 30, 2022.

We appreciate your time and participation in this historical project. Please also include a cell phone and email address with your submission in case we have questions.

 

 

Warmly,

Judy Silverstein Gray
