Mountain Club; Democratic Club; Henry Clay Law Society; Attorney-General (3); Treasurer (4); Senior Football Team; Law Baseball Team (3).

Kit Carson has a Louisa over on the banks of the Big Sandy, and she expects much of him. If his college life is an index to the future, we say she will not be disappointed. He is just himself on all occasions and is one of the few fellows who do not care to copy or pretend.

-The Kentuckian, 1917
