Lindsey Wilson College awarded 407 degrees on Saturday December 10 at its 104th commencement ceremony. This was Lindsey Wilson's third largest winter class since the college began holding winter commencement ceremonies, in additional to spring ceremonies, in December 2004. LWC's largest winter class was 418, which was graduated in 2013. On Saturday, LWC awarded 237 undergraduate degrees and 170 graduate degrees.

During her commencement address, Somerset Community College (KY) President Jo Marshall remarked on the graduates' progression through life.

"You've had a wonderful start at Lindsey Wilson College," said Marshall. "But now you will move on to find your second spiritual home."

Marshall also reflected on the parallels of the graduates and the Robert Frost poem, 'The Road Not Taken.'

"We all know the words of that Frost poem, 'two roads diverged in a yellow wood'," said Marshall. "And I took the one less traveled and that has made all the difference. We don't know if Frost meant that as a good difference or a bad difference, but it has made the difference for him. The roads that you face will make the difference for you too. Think carefully, there's probably advantages to going several different ways, but please don't forget to believe in yourself because your family and your education leaders have believed in you and they are betting on you. I am betting on you."

After her commencement address, Marshall was awarded an honorary doctorate from the college.

The college also bestowed posthumously an honorary doctorate to Nancy Sinclair of Summersville, Kentucky.
