By Travis Smith
News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - A Metcalfe County resident competed in Lindsey Wilson College's 2010 Scholars Day, held Saturday Feb. 20, 2010. She is:
Haley Shontel Hicks -The daughter of Tony and Marla Hicks of Edmonton, KY. Haley is a member of Spanish Club, BETA Club and Student Government.The Metcalfe County resident was among 131 select high school seniors from four states who were invited by the college to compete for one of three John B. Begley Scholarships.
The 131 Begley Scholars candidates submitted essays, interviewed with a three-panel committee and met with the college's faculty and staff.
The Begley Scholars Program - which is considered to be one of the most prestigious scholarships in Kentucky higher education - was created in 1997 to honor John B. Begley, who served as the sixth president of Lindsey Wilson from 1978-97. Begley Scholars receive a full-tuition-and-fees scholarship to attend Lindsey Wilson. The renewable scholarship - which includes tuition, room and board - is worth more than $23,000 a year and more than $100,000 over four years. Students are named Begley Scholars based on their academic ability and performance, leadership, community service and extracurricular activities.
"You will all receive a world-class education if you choose to attend Lindsey Wilson," said Lindsey Wilson President William T. Luckey Jr. "The thing that makes this scholarship so distinctive is the experience you will have while a Begley Scholar. It's a world-class experience to go along with a world-class education."
This year's Begley Scholars will be announced in three to four weeks, according to LWC Director of Admissions Charity Ferguson.
Begley Scholars are expected to participate in at least two co-curricular activities simultaneously, assuming formal leadership in at least one of them.
Begley Scholars are also required to fulfill a service component and are expected to distinguish themselves as men and women of high moral character by living according to high personal standards and exercising good judgment daily.
