News from Lindsey Wilson College


Columbia, KY - The Lindsey Wilson College community celebrated the final official day of summer by reaching out to others.

On Wednesday, classes were canceled and offices were closed as students, faculty and staff on the A.P. White Campus participated in Malvina Farkle Day.




The day, which has been celebrated by the college every fall since 1996, includes a morning of service followed by an afternoon of campus games.

The day is named in honor of a mythical Lindsey Wilson alumna and former staff member who dedicated her life to service and fun.

"When you think about how big of a difference we can make on this community, it's pretty mind-boggling," Lindsey Wilson President William T. Luckey Jr. told a gathering Wednesday morning in the Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center.

During the morning, LWC students, faculty and staff served more than two dozen community organizations, including area schools, churches and other social-service agencies.

"Adair County will be a better place today because of what you do in terms of volunteering your time and effort," Luckey said.

Luckey told the students that he hoped the day would inspire them to make service a permanent part of their lives. He noted that this fall the college has 62 students who are part of the Bonner Leader Program. Each Bonner leader volunteers at least 10 hours a week at a local agency."I hope it's contagious, and you will decide to also become a Bonner leader and to do more to reach out and make this a better place," Luckey said.

Two of the LWC students who were inspired by the day of service were Katie Hartney of London, KY, and Ruth Olson of Glasgow, KY.

The two were among four dozen students who participated in a trash pick-up along Bull Run in Adair County.

"It was a fun day," said Hartney, who is a freshman. "Just everyone being together was great because they tried to make the community a better place."Olson missed Malvina Farkle Day in 2009 because she was sick. And the sophomore said she was glad she was well in 2010.

"I heard so much about it before, but it's kind of something you have to experience for yourself to understand what makes this such a special day," Olson said.

  • Adair County Fairgrounds
