ORAL HISTORY

Treber McGuirt, cook and maintenance staff


Mary Beth Lasseter: Where are you from originally?

Treber McGuirt:  I’m originally from Oxford. I stay on West Spring Hill. I have one five year old kid and I’m divorced right now and kinda settling down but I’ve been with the guys at the KA house four years, this is my fourth year.

How did you get involved with the KAs?

Well I was out of work one day and I went to a job service agency that sent me out here. That was, like I said, a few years ago. I’ve been here four years so I’ve worked here ever since then.

And do you primarily work in the kitchen?

Uh, basically I’m kind of like an all over guy. I help in the kitchen. I clean up upstairs. I help serve or just whatever that they need to be done.
