Six Adair Co. residents compete at LWC Begley Scholars Day
Lindsey Wilson College held its 24th Scholars Day on Saturday, January 23, 2021. The Begley Scholars program, named after LWC's 6th President John B. Begley, was launched in 1997 and is to this day the most prestigious scholarship awarded by the college. The three incoming freshmen that receive the scholarship are granted full tuition, room and board for their four years at Lindsey Wilson College. Trips to Hemingway's "Great American Cities", research projects and a multitude of other activities also encompass the Begley Scholar experience.
More than 70 high school seniors from various parts of Kentucky, Indiana, North Carolina and Texas came to LWC's A.P. White Campus Saturday for the annual Scholars Day.
Among the students competing for the prestigious scholarship were Columbia residents:
In a recorded message, 2018 LWC Biology and Psychophysiology graduate Kate Durham Young told the candidates about her experience at LWC and how that even though she didn't receive the Begley Scholarship after competing as a high school senior, she still knew that LWC was the place for her.
"As a student I had professors that encouraged me constantly and were willing to meet me both inside and outside of the classroom," said Young. "I hope that you will choose to be a part of the Lindsey Wilson Family and remember your hard work regarding your academics has already made you a winner in so many ways."
Later this spring, three high school seniors who attended Saturday's invitation-only event will be named John B. Begley Scholars, LWC's most prestigious scholarship.
