LWC found alternate ways to honor students and seniors
By Venus Popplewell
The 2019-20 academic year at Lindsey Wilson College came to a close last week. Because of restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, all senior events and award ceremonies were cancelled. However, LWC found alternative ways to recognize students for excellence and service.
More than five dozen individuals were honored by the 117-year-old liberal arts college for academic achievement during the 2019-20 academic year. The annual honors convocation ceremony was cancelled but LWC faculty, staff and administration made the most of a challenging situation by placing personal phone calls to each of the award recipients and LWC President William T. Luckey Jr., recorded a message congratulating the top students that were recognized.
Also cancelled was the College's annual senior banquet. LWC posted a video on May 1 of what would have been the eve of the 111th commencement ceremony. Students watched recorded messages from the President of the LWC National Alumni Association Drew Sadler, Alumni Director Hannah Peck, LWC President William T. Luckey Jr., and senior class officers Gracie Kurtz from Brooksville Ky., and Molly Carnall from Shepherdsville, Ky.
