As the Alumnae Association of Watkins and Miller Scholarship Halls & our EMW Memorial Scholarship, Kitchen 8 strives to link our rich heritage with an exciting present and a bright future. As our association grows and technology changes, Kitchen 8 continues to expand its offerings to its membership. To do this, we created a new website with both public information and expanded member resources.
