COLUMBIA, Ky. -- First & Farmers National Bank of
Columbia calls Lindsey Wilson College one of Columbia-Adair
County's greatest assets.
That's why the bank recently gave $10,000 to the Lindsey Wilson Fund. The donation will be used
to provide scholarship aid for Columbia-Adair County residents to
attend LWC. During the 2009-10 school year, more than 350
Columbia-Adair County residents attended LWC.
"First & Farmers is proud of its partnership
with Lindsey Wilson College, and we are also proud of the strong
relationship Lindsey Wilson has with the community," said First
& Farmers National Bank President Ann Martin. "The college is a
valuable asset to Columbia-Adair County."
Lindsey Wilson blue runs in Martin's family. She is a 1975 graduate
of the college, and her son Ross is a 2005 Lindsey Wilson graduate
who is enrolled dental school at the University of Louisville.
Martin also knows Lindsey Wilson's value through the many
graduates of the college hired by the bank.
"When you stop and look at everything happening here in
Columbia-Adair County, Lindsey Wilson has either played a role or
is responsible for it," Martin said. "As Lindsey Wilson grows, so
grows the community."
LWC administrators say they are grateful for the support from
First & Farmers National Bank.
"For the last 10 years, Lindsey Wilson has been one of
Kentucky's fastest-growing colleges or universities," said LWC
President William T. Luckey Jr. "A big reason for that
growth has been because this college has been blessed to have
strong partners such as First & Farmers National Bank. Because
of our partnership with First & Farmers, Lindsey Wilson can
continue to serve our region's education needs."
