COLUMBIA, KY - Lindsey Wilson College will celebrate students' academic achievements, honor the college's founders, and dedicate two new structures today and tomorrow.

The week's activities will include Honors Convocation; the annual Founders' Day Dinner, featuring a keynote address by the Rev. Tony Campolo; and the dedication of Egnew Park and the Doris and Bob Holloway Health & Wellness Center.

"It will be a busy week in Columbia as we recognize our students' outstanding academic work of the 2009-10 school year and also celebrate the dedication of two more structures," said Lindsey Wilson President William T. Luckey Jr., who has been the college's eighth president since 1998. "It will be a wonderful week."

Egnew Park will be dedicated today

Egnew Park, 820 Hanley LN, Columbia, KY, will be dedicated on Tuesday, April 20, following the first game of the doubleheader between Lindsey Wilson and Indiana University-Southeast. The first game is scheduled to begin at 3pmCT.

Egnew Park, which is the new home of the LWC baseball program, is part of a more than 20-acre outdoor sports complex that has been developed by the college off Exit 49 of the Louie B. Nunn Parkway. In addition to Egnew Park, the sports complex also includes a softball field and an outdoor sports stadium that will host the football and track and field programs. Football will return to Lindsey Wilson next fall after a 75-year absence.

Egnew Park is named in honor of the Egnew family of Stearns, KY, who are longtime supporters of the Lindsey Wilson mission.
