Jordan Woody presents academic paper at King College
Columbian 1 of 4 LWC students who present academic papers 1st time
Jordan Woody, Columbia, KY, was one of a group of Lindsey Wilson College students who recently distinguished themselves when they took part in a regional academic conference.
Ms. Woody is the daughter of Jan and Jimmy Woody of Columbia, KY.
One of four students to present academic papers for first time
At the conference, Ms. Woody was one of four Lindsey Wilson students who presented academic papers for the first time: Joey Littrell of Eubank, Ky., Ashley Schaffner of Vine Grove, Ky., Angela Sexton of Campbellsville, Ky., and Jordan Woody of Columbia.
The nine students attended the 13th-annual Blue Ridge Research Conference, held March 28 at King College in northeast Tennessee.
The Lindsey Wilson participants also listened to research conducted by students from other Kentucky and Tennessee colleges.
"The conference was a wonderful experience," Littrell said. "It offered undergraduate students the opportunity to voice their ideas and gain a sense of how professionals are able to communicate within their chosen profession."
Professor Roland says conference great way to expand horizons
The conference also was a great way for students to expand their horizons, according to Associate Professor of English Lilian D. Roland, who was one of two Lindsey Wilson professors who accompanied students on the trip.
"The conference provided a marvelous opportunity for our student presenters and other class members to meet and network with like-minded students from different areas of the country," Roland said.
Roland said the students also learned a great deal from their peers.
"Not only did students present their research in this regional forum but they benefited from having their peers and others suggest insights into the research itself through queries posed to the presenters, and to reap these rewards of their scholarly exploration and discovery," she said.
LIndsey students stand out among peers, professor says
And Roland said the Lindsey Wilson students stood out among their peers.
"Our students exhibited a calm, self-assured demeanor as they presented well-prepared papers that showed a profundity of thought well beyond the students' experiences and years," she said. "I was very proud of them."
