ISP thanks Mary Ann Loy for amazing work
From Anna Grace Peterson
Assistant Director of International Student Programs
When driving through the Square in Columbia, KY, a brightly colored signpost can be seen, sporting the names of various countries along with distances in miles and kilometers from Columbia to the location.
This project was generously created and organized by an ISP Host Parent and long-time supporter Mary Ann Loy in the fall of 2017. While the sign has been around for a few years, Loy has dedicated many hours this summer to refreshing the paint and updating the project to reflect each of the countries currently represented on the Lindsey campus!
The original inspiration for this project stemmed from similar signs on M*A*S*H, in Nantucket, and in other locations.
"We wanted to show how the international students bring the world to Columbia," says Loy, "we wanted these students to feel welcomed."
Loy was not alone in her work on this project: Involved parties included the Adair County High School art department, the ACHS industrial arts program, the LWC grounds staff, approval from the fiscal court, and others. This community-wide participation in the project is yet another show of support for LWC and the international community here on campus!
The signpost now stands proudly on the square for all to see. Thank you, Mary Ann Loy, for all of your dedication and support for ISP!
If you stop by the sign, take a photo and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured on our social media!
