The Adoni Arts and Science College is not only the second oldest college in Kurnool district, it is the sweet dream of a drought prone, backward region, where people have known only privation but no privilege. It is not built by any Maha Rajah or Nawab, but by the common people, by the dint of their hard work. The sweat of their brow underwent a glorious transformation into academic ambrosia. A Service Organization like the Rotary Club joined hands with them and sponsored the college. It is all the more remarkable that all this happened forty five years ago.
