Columbia, KY - A couple hundred members of the Lindsey Wilson College Class of 2016 met Tuesday night to launch the senior class gift, which they hope will ring in a new era at the liberal arts college.
LWC Director of Alumni Relations Randy Burns announced that the senior class offices would work with members of the LWC Class of 1966 to build bell tower on campus. The tower - which will be about 40 feet tall - will house the Blue Raider Victory Bell, Burns said.
For more than 50 years, the bell was housed in a cupola that sat atop the L.R. McDonald Administration Building. College officials assumed the bell had been lost when the cupola was removed, until it was discovered a few years ago in a residence hall basement.
Burns said the goal is for the two classes to raise $12,000 for the project. Once the bell is reinstalled on campus, it will be used to celebrate athletic victories and other LWC milestones, he said.
