LWC athletics participates in Malvina Farkle Day
"Malvina Farkle Day is always an excellent opportunity for our student-athletes to give back to a community that supports them. I'm very appreciative of our coaching staff for organizing the community service projects, and couldn't be prouder of the effort our student-athletes put forward in making a difference for so many in Adair County." - WILLIS POOLER, Athletic Director

News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - Lindsey Wilson College student-athletes, coaches and administrators joined a campus-wide community service initiative around Columbia to commemorate Malvina Farkle Day on Wednesday.
The Blue Raiders took a break from their regular academic and athletic obligations to repay the community for their support.
"Malvina Farkle Day is always an excellent opportunity for our student-athletes to give back to a community that supports them," Lindsey Wilson athletics director Willis Pooler said. "I'm very appreciative of our coaching staff for organizing the community service projects, and couldn't be prouder of the effort our student-athletes put forward in making a difference for so many in Adair County."
The wrestling, women's soccer, football, men's and women's bowling and men's and women's cross country and track and field teams participated in a community-wide trash pickup. Wrestling covered the Jamestown Street area, men's and women's bowling cleaned along Fairgrounds Street, football began at Blue Raider Stadium and covered the surrounding areas and the women's soccer team covered the town square.
The men's and women's tennis team and men's and women's basketball teams participated in campus improvement projects. Lindsey Wilson softball and the Blue Raider swim teams worked on improvements and renovations to the Jim Blair Community Recreation Center.
Volleyball visited The Ole Homeplace, an adult daycare health center.
The men's soccer team led physical education classes at the Adair County Primary Center, leading the children in games and activities.
"Servant Leadership is one of the five core values of the NAIA's Champions of Character program," Pooler said. "The community service our student-athletes completed today is a blessing to them and those they served."
Malvina Farkle Day is a yearly tradition at Lindsey Wilson College where the campus gives back to the surrounding area through community-service activities in the morning, followed by fun and games in the afternoon. All classes are canceled so everyone can participate.
The exact date of Malvina Farkle Day is kept secret from students until the day of the event, when students are traditionally woken up by sirens and bullhorns, and the day of community service and fun begins.
