International Education Week: It's a Small World After All

It's a Small World After All. That's what the organizations who put up the sign on the courthouse lawn want everyone to know.

Barry Loy introduced the sign at the official unveiling Monday November 13th 2017 with these words, "Many do not realize that 100 students from 39 countries attend Lindsey Wilson College. This interaction of cultures enriches Adair County and the students. Mary Anne and I saw a directional sign in Nantucket and we were reminded of the sign on the TV show MASH. We thought this concept would be perfect to showcase the countries represented at LWC. Quoting from a sign that I saw in a church lawn: no matter where you are from, we are glad you are our neighbor."


The directional sign on the courthouse lawn, notng each country that one of our students come from, hasn't the following country name and number of miles and killometers. This list only includes miles:

A street scene in thriving, welcoming, Burlington, VT, captured by Columbia, KY, traveler Barry Loy, illustrating what economic impact, what pleasing wonders can be created with just paint.
