Allan Parnell kicks off LWC 48-hour Chair's Challenge fundraiser

All In for LWC Chair's Challenge: "I'm excited to be part of Lindsey Wilson College. We not only teach good ethics and embrace Christian principles but we also teach and prepare students to be the future of this nation." -- Allan Mercer Parnell, Chairman of the Board of Trustees

By Venus Popplewell, LWC Director of Public Relations

Lindsey Wilson College Board of Trustees Chair and Adair County native Allan Parnell will donate $200,000 toward LWC student scholarship aid if 2,500 donors make gifts during the 48-hour period between September 19-20. This marks the fourth year in which Parnell has issued a 48-hour challenge.

LWC alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends have successfully met Parnell's challenge in each of the three previous years. Last year Parnell's pledge of $100,000 for 1,000 donors was met when the college received gifts from 1,934 donors (494 unique gifts contributed by the student body). In total, including Parnell's gift, the college raised $416,765 during the 2016 campaign.


Parnell is confident this this year will be no different.

"I'm excited to be part of Lindsey Wilson," said Parnell. "We not only teach good ethics and embrace Christian principles but we also teach and prepare students to be the future of this nation. You're going to see that we will get 2,500 plus donors this year."

William T. Luckey Jr., President of Lindsey Wilson College, is hopeful that the challenge will be met.

"I know and love the people and friends of Lindsey Wilson College and I believe we can do it," said Luckey. "I've always been told if you reach for the stars you may not end up with a star, but you also won't end up with a handful of dirt. So I'm asking anyone connected with Lindsey Wilson College to reach for the stars to help meet Mr. P's challenge to make a difference in the lives of our students."
