LONDON, KY - A total of 13 area residents were honored Thursday night by Lindsey Wilson College. The students - all of whom are enrolled at the LWC London Community Campus - were recognized at a pinning ceremony held at the London Community Center.

The students will receive their diplomas at Lindsey Wilson's winter commencement ceremony, to be held on Saturday, December 10, 2011, at the college's A.P. White Campus in Columbia, KY.

But Thursday night's celebration was designed to recognize the 11 area residents who have earned a bachelor of arts degree in human services and counseling and the two area residents who have earned a master of education in counseling and human development.

Thanks to an innovative partnership between Lindsey Wilson and Somerset Community College, the area residents were able to complete their degrees in London by taking classes on weekends from LWC faculty.

Both degrees prepare students to work in the mental-health profession as counselors and counselor educators.

The LWC-London Community Campus also recognized a local resident for his efforts to promote higher education in the region. Tim Cesario, a therapist at Cumberland River Comprehensive Care, was presented an LWC Appreciation Award.

The 11 area residents who earned a bachelor's degree in human services and counseling were: Olivia "Alli" Burton of Corbin, KY; Jason Coffey of London; Ericka Combs of Corbin, KY; Courtney Kirby of Mount Vernon, KY; Latessa Lawson of Corbin, KY; Regina Lewis of London; Amy Martin of Corbin, KY; Crystal Mays of Corbin, Ky.; Wendy McKnight of London; Lisa Sturdivant of Corbin; and Constantine Wagers of London.

The two area residents who earned a master of education in counseling and human development were: Lauren Campbell of Lily, KY, and Ellen Michelle Haddock of Corbin, KY.
