LWC to celebrate 89th Homecoming, Class of 2020 in-person commencement
Some event times have changed or canceled since the printed schedule was released. Please go to www.lindsey.edu/homecoming for updated information.
By Venus Popplewell
An in-person commencement ceremony will be held to recognize the members of the Class of 2020 during Lindsey Wilson College's 89th homecoming weekend, Oct. 1 and 2.
The in-person commencement ceremony is for all students who graduated in 2020 whose final year at LWC was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.
"We've experienced an extraordinary year and a half. It is exciting to finally have the opportunity to bring people back to campus and celebrate all the things we have missed, as well as the things we have accomplished," said Lafawn Nettles, who was named LWC Director of Alumni relations last fall.
LWC Homecoming will kick off on Thursday, September 30, with two events: a faculty and staff homecoming reunion cookout at 11amCT, and a pep rally with fireworks at *7:30pmCT. Both events will take place on the campus quadrangle.
The Class of 2020, invitation only, in-person commencement ceremony will begin at 9amCT, Saturday, October 2, on the campus quadrangle, 400 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia, KY.
"It's always great to have everyone back on campus, but this year it is just incredibly special," said Nettles. "We have longed to return to normalcy after more than a year of uncertainty and disappointment. We hope this event can be a joyous time for everyone."
The Alumni & Friends Homecoming 5K will be held on Saturday morning, Oct. 2, at the Doris and Bob Holloway Health & Wellness Center, 399 Williams St., Columbia. Registration begins at 7:30amCT, and the race starts at 8amCT.
The Alumni Awards Celebration scheduled to be held on Saturday has been canceled. The four individuals selected as 2021 award recipients by the LWC National Alumni Association will be recognized at a later date. To be honored:
The Bonner Scholars will host a come-and-go service opportunity from 9:30amCT to 11amCT on Saturday. Those interested can meet at the Wilkerson Bonner House to serve alongside Bonner alums.
The Alumni Tailgate Zone will be open from 3pmCT until 5pmCT on Saturday at the Lindsey Wilson Sports Park - Egnew Park, and is free of charge for all LWC Alumni.
LWC Homecoming will conclude with the crowning of the 2021 LWC homecoming king and queen at halftime of the football game between LWC and Cumberland (TN) University at Parnell Family Stadium, Lindsey Wilson Sports Park, 820 Hanley Lane. Kickoff has been updated to 5pmCT.
