Three Adair residents compete for John B. Begley Scholarship

Three candidates from Columbia, KY: Christopher Franklin. Johnathan Ollery. Lauren Talley

By Travis Smith, Lindsey Wilson College

Lindsey Wilson College held its 20th Scholars Day on Saturday, February 4. 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 90 high school seniors and their family members -- who were from throughout Kentucky and the region -- came to LWC's A.P. White Campus Saturday for the annual Scholars Day.


Among these 90 students, 3 Columbia residents competed for the scholarship:
Christopher Franklin, Johnathan Ollery, and Lauren Talley.
The candidates spent the morning interviewing with panels made up of LWC professors, staff, students and alumni. Parents learned more about Lindsey Wilson College in their own session and all of the candidates took part in ice-breaker games to get to know one another. After the morning sessions, the annual Scholars Luncheon took place in the Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center.

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.

Traci Pooler, Dean of Admissions at LWC, told the students and parents at the luncheon that it's not only the Begley Scholars at LWC that do great things.

"For every Begley Scholar accomplishment I can name ten other accomplishments of people that were never named Begley Scholars", said Pooler. "So I hope that what you take home today is that Begley Scholarship or not, you can receive a top-notch world class education at Lindsey Wilson."
