45 Adair Co. residents receive degrees from Lindsey Wilson
By Mariah Stearns
Forty-five Adair County residents received undergraduate or graduate degrees at Lindsey Wilson College's 105th commencement ceremony, held May 13 in Biggers Sports Center.
The college capped off its largest graduating class in the college's 114-year history at Saturday's spring commencement, held before a record crowd of over 3,000 guests. The college awarded a total of 282 undergraduate and graduate degrees. Combined with the degrees awarded at last winter's commencement ceremony, the Lindsey Wilson Class of 2017 was a record 689 students.
The 45 Adair County residents who received degrees from Lindsey Wilson were:
"My life is a life unplanned," said Hampton. "If your life doesn't go as you planned it's truly okay. However, take the time to see the opportunity. It may not look like you thought it would look, but it's there. Find the blessings and pray for guidance. Don't wait decades before you start praying for guidance, because once I started doing that, that's how I was lead to become Lt. Governor. And find something to be thankful for every day."
Hampton received an honorary doctorate from the college's faculty and board of trustees. Also receiving an honorary doctorate were two individuals from the college: Sue Coomer, a recent retiree and 46 year employee of the college and Phil Hanna, soon to retire Director of Library Services capping off 24 years of service to the college. Twelve members of the Golden Alumni Class of 1967 were also recognized as part of the ceremony.
