News from Lindsey Wilson College

Kentucky residents can show their support for Lindsey Wilson College by sporting a Lindsey Wilson license plate on their cars or trucks. And they can also help out a Lindsey Wilson student.

A Lindsey Wilson plate costs $44 upon initial issue and $31 at renewal. The license plate increases awareness of LWC and also raises funds for student scholarships; $10 from the sale of each plate goes to the Lindsey Wilson Fund, which provides scholarship aid to students.

"This is a great way to help out a Lindsey Wilson student while showing your Blue Raider pride," said LWC Director of Alumni Relations Randy Burns '93. "It's a great way to make your vehicle look sharp and make a donation to the Lindsey Wilson Fund."

Each year, Kentucky's 20 private colleges and universities hold a friendly competition among the institutions., nicknamed the "Battle of the Bumpers," to see which campus can sell the most plates. This year's contest was won by Transylvania University.
