The gift will be formally announced and celebrated on September 15, 2016 at 5 p.m. in the auditorium adjacent to the Orval Pirtle Administration Building, which will ultimately be renamed the Pauline Knight Perkins Performing Arts Center. Nancy will present the TVCC Foundation with a 1946-47 signed yearbook belonging to her mother and celebrate in her mother’s legacy. Pauline Perkins was the first secretary to college founder and President Orval Pirtle, and ultimately became the longest-living member of the original faculty.
