LWC Celebrates 10 Seasons of Football at 88th Homecoming
By Venus Popplewell
Rhondell Walker II returned to LWC's campus this weekend to honor a program that helped him realize a lifelong dream.
"A lot of people dream about playing college football and I got the chance to do it," said Walker from Nashville, Tenn. who graduated in 2019. "Being a part of this Blue Raider team is like no other experience -- and to work with Coach O (Chris Oliver) and the Blue Raiders was a dream come true."
Lindsey Wilson College held it's 88th-annual Homecoming celebration over the weekend. The four-day event included an anniversary reunion for the LWC football program which returned to the grid-iron in the fall of 2010 after a 75 year hiatus. More than 25 former LWC football players returned to celebrate the program.
In addition to the football reunion, the Lindsey Wilson Alumni Association and Athletic Hall of Fame honored six alumni and one longtime friend of the college on Saturday morning. Other activities included the student-led pep rally and fireworks; the 16th-annual Morris Shepherd '53 Pingpong Tournament; the Alumni & Friends 5K; and reunions for the wrestling program, Bonner Scholars and a 50-year reunion for the class of 1969.
Four individuals were honored by the LWC National Alumni Association:
In her acceptance speech, Associate Professor of Communication Susan K. Minton reflected on the impact of Lindsey Wilson's primary benefactor, Catherine Wilson, who contributed $6,000 toward the school's founding.
"Could she have ever imagined? Because of her generosity, lives have been touched and forever changed," said Minton. "No, I don't think there is any way Catherine Wilson could have envisioned that over 100 years later students from Kentucky, the United States and from around the world would be influenced in the way our students are. I know because my life has been touched because of Catherine Wilson."
Lindsey Wilson Singers hold annual Standards of Excellence Ceremony
On Friday evening, the Lindsey Wilson Singers held their annual "Standards of Excellence Ceremony" in the John B. Begley Chapel. The hour-long ceremony included scripture readings, reflections on the year's theme, prayers and singing. Each member of the choral ensemble signed their name to the group's Standards of Excellence, pledging to maintain the group's high level of performance, academic excellence and live a life of integrity.
