This year King University celebrates its 150th anniversary. In honor of this occasion, the Development Office and a couple of members of the History Committee, as well as Bettie Hite created a book that includes photos and memories from years past. Bettie Hite, who graduated from King in 1963, was asked by the Denise Asbury to write the book. Asbury is the Director of Development and she has largely directed production of the book. Asbury contacted Bettie to see if she knew of anyone who would be interested in writing the 150th book. She replied “Me” she claims it has “inspired her writing.”
King University’s Women’s volleyball team fell in a hard-fought matchup against North Greenville this past Tuesday. Many families and students alike supported the game with complementary t-shirts being given out to flood the bleachers with the theme of white-out to show off their King Pride. Each set was a dog fight between the two teams, going back and forth in the score column. NGU won the first set by 8, scoring 25-17. NGU won the second set by seven at 25-18. Finally, NGU won the third set by two at an impressive 30-28. King fought to the very end but fell as The Crusaders won three consecutive sets to the Tornados’ zero. The Tornados will look to bounce back this Tuesday as they travel to play Converse.
From September 15th-17th NASCAR made its second stop in Bristol, bringing breath-taking action, bad-fast cars, and drivers yearning for a chance at a championship. The Bristol night race serves as a playoff cutoff race eliminating 4 of the 16 total playoff drivers from competing for a championship. The Bass Pro Shops Night Race would see a surprise winner, major drivers eliminated from the playoffs, and a night full of tire trouble.
Dear King student, the editor of The Kayseean asked me to write an article on “how to make college worth it,” that is, how you might better your college experience and prepare for the future. I’m writing you a letter instead, because a letter tends to be more direct; I need to lay five things out in just a few words.
Summer is a great time to bust out the cookbook and test your culinary skills. Whether it’s on the grill, the stove, or over the fire, cooking can be a great way to bring a family together. The Kayseean staff has compiled some of our personal favorite recipes to share with your family this summer break!

Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, which began in February and continues, is at its heart an effort to recreate the glory of the Soviet Union, which formally collapsed in 1991 after decades of over-spending on its military and the sheer failure of Marxist ideology. Within a decade, Russia would default on its debt—it was so cash-strapped that it was unable to pay state employees, fail to keep NATO from kicking Serbians (a Russian ally) out of Kosovo, watch former allies join NATO, lose a war in Chechnya, and become a bastion of corruption. Putin, a former KGB (Soviet intelligence) officer, resented the shame heaped upon Russia, and in a 1999 speech to the Duma he spoke of “strengthening the vertical chain” of power domestically, and go on to say “Russia has been a great power for centuries, and remains so. It has always has and still has legitimate zones of interest…we should not drop our guard in this respect, neither should we allow our opinion to be ignored.”
After a thorough investigation led by reporters at The Kayseean, a political conflict amongst the critters of the Oval was uncovered. We have found that many of the major players within the critter community are beginning to retaliate against each other due to a single common factor.
