CONTRIBUTIONS BY ALUMNI FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE COLLEGE
- Contributed to the Mid Day Meal Scheme for the poor and needy students who come from neighbouring villages and who could not afford to eat in hostels/mess. The Association contributed Rs.2.7 lakhs for the scheme which will cater food to 120/125 needy students per day for 125 days. The maximum contribution of Rs.79,000/- for this scheme came from one Kunapulli family through Smt. N.Sita, who graduated from this college in 1962. This was followed by another old student, Dr.Mutyala Murthy and all his family members who contributed Rs.25,000/-. In fact whoever could be contacted was tapped and requested to make their contribution for this novel scheme. The Teaching Staff along with our Association take the responsibility of indentifying the real needy students meet their parent/s and the food is provided to them, verifying their attendance on College working days.
- The Old Administration Building of the College, where the Principal’s office was located earlier was restored to its original shape with the funds from INTACH, contribution from a member of the late Rajah’s family and a major contribution from one old student, Shri. Y.V.S.S.Murthy, who passed away recently in Hyderabad. The tiled roof of the building caved in and the R&B authorities declared it as unsafe for occupation. To preserve the old genuine valuable teak wood structures and architecture, old student, Smt. Lakkaraju Sesha Kumari who is a Convener for the INTACH’s East Godavari Chapter, sent a project proposal to INTACH, Delhi for restoring the building which fructified. Tiles had to be specially ordered for repairing the roof and a lot of effort has gone in for completing the job through the Association.
- An alumni Block with a plinth area of 2600 sft. is the latest contribution of the Association to the College. In order to meet the need for additional class rooms, the area is made into 3 class rooms and a staff room at the request of the Principal. The major contribution for building came from one of the old Students, Shri Y.V.S.S. Murthy.
