Homecoming: LWC to celebrate 10 Seasons of LWC Football
By Venus Popplewell
Lindsey Wilson College will recognize a very special anniversary September 12-15 2019, during the college's homecoming celebration festivities.
The 116-year-old liberal arts college will celebrate ten seasons since the return of the LWC football program during the college's 88th homecoming. LWC football returned to Lindsey Wilson in the fall of 2010 after a 75-year absence.
"We are excited about partnering this special weekend with football," said LWC Director of Alumni Relations Hannah Peck. "The football team is held to a high standard of character and always represents the college well. Coach Oliver is not only coaching but teaching these young men how to behave as good citizens of the world. We are so proud of everything he has accomplished in a very short time."
The event-packed weekend will also feature a reunion for current and former members of the football program, as well as reunions for the wrestling program, the Bonners Scholars program and a 50-year reunion for the Class of 1969.
Six alumni and one longtime member of the LWC college faculty will be honored at the Alumni Awards and Athletic Hall of Fame Celebration on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 11amCT in the Cranmer Dining Center, Lindsey Wilson College, 430 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia, KY. The four individuals to be honored are:

On Friday, the LWC Volleyball team plays Life University at 5pmCT in Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard Drive, Columbia, KY.
The Alumni & Friends Homecoming 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday morning, Septemer 14, at the Doris and Bob Holloway Health & Wellness Center, 399 Williams St., Columbia. Registration begins at 7:30amCT, and the race starts at 8amCT.
