A commemorative 15-month calendar depicting the life and times from the founding of Tarkio College in 1883 through the school year 2021 at Tarkio Tech is now available for purchase. The Tarkio Road calendar is based on a 1913 Tarkio College calendar and contains photos and text from the college newspapers over the years, The Tarkio Torch and The Phoenix, as well as text from the Alumni Bulletin.

All proceeds go to the Tarkio Tech Steering Committee. This committee hosts a variety of events each year designed to raise awareness of Tarkio College through programs at Tarkio Tech for regional employers, area school districts, state officials, Tarkio College alumni and the residents of the surrounding area.

Pre-ordering is available by contacting Donald White at tarkiowhitehouse@hotmail.com or 660-736-4705, or Laura Gibbons at info@tarkiotech.com or 660-623-9071. The calendar is available for $20 plus shipping and handling until September 17. After that time, the cost will be $25. One calendar will be marked with a hidden symbol for a lucky winner to receive a Tarkio College/Tarkio Tech gift basket with an estimated value of $250.

An excerpt from the calendar: Tarkio College Torch October 11, 1990: The TC Board of Directors approved initiatives including a proposal to fund and renovate Brown Gymnasium as a performance area by transferring the ownership of Brown Gymnasium to the Mule Barn Theatre Guild which will renovate the facility into a performance space through a $1.5 million renovation and endowment campaign.
