Casey Co's Beldon and Salyers earn degrees from LWC
Click on headline for story with list of graduates from Casey County and degrees earned.
By Mariah Stearns
Two Casey County residents recently graduated from Lindsey Wilson College. They were among 340 students who received undergraduate or graduate degrees at the college's 106th commencement ceremony, held December 9th in Biggers Sports Center in Columbia.
The 2 Casey County, Kentucky residents who received degrees from Lindsey Wilson were:
Members of the first half of the Lindsey Wilson College Class of 2017-18 were told Saturday morning to go forward with a "glass half-full" attitude because a positive perspective will shape the way they lead and adapt to change.
Those were the words 45-year automotive industry veteran and LWC trustee James J. Pike delivered at the college's 106th commencement ceremony, held Saturday morning in Biggers Sports Center.
"We were always looking for people in my companies with a "glass half-full" outlook," said Pike. "It was the people with a positive perspective that made the best leaders."
"Everyone has leadership qualities. You may not be using it yet but it is within you. Expand, grow and nurture your leadership potential because you will use it forever - in your family, business, community and faith. And you have taken the first step today by becoming a college graduate."
LWC awarded an honorary doctorate to Pike and posthumously, to local businessman and LWC trustee Robert Lewis Garrison who passed away suddenly in November.
Lindsey Wilson awarded 340 degrees at this year's winter commencement - 196 undergraduate degrees and 144 graduate degrees. The winter class also included LWC's first graduates from the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program.
