2 Structures to be Dedicated, Founders' Day to be Celebrated

Posted on Monday, April 19, 2010 [7:48 AM]
COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College will celebrate students' academic achievements, honor the college's founders, and dedicate two new structures next week.
The week's activities will include Honors Convocation; the annual Founders' Day Dinner, featuring a keynote address by the Rev. Tony Campolo; and the dedication of Egnew Park and the Doris and Bob Holloway Health & Wellness Center.
"It will be a busy week in Columbia as we recognize our students' outstanding academic work of the 2009-10 school year and also celebrate the dedication of two more structures," said Lindsey Wilson President William T. Luckey Jr., who has been the college's eighth president since 1998. "It will be a wonderful week." 
Egnew Park will be dedicated on Tuesday, April 20, following the first game of the doubleheader between Lindsey Wilson and Indiana University-Southeast. The first game is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. CT.
Egnew Park, which is the new home of the LWC baseball program, is part of a more than 20-acre outdoor sports complex that has been developed by the college off Exit 49 of the Louie B. Nunn Parkway. In addition to Egnew Park, the sports complex also includes a softball field and an outdoor sports stadium that will host the football and track and field programs. Football will return to Lindsey Wilson next fall after a 75-year absence.
Egnew Park is named in honor of the Egnew family of Stearns, Ky., who are longtime supporters of the Lindsey Wilson mission.
The Holloway Health & Wellness Center will be dedicated at 1 p.m. CT on Wednesday, April 21. The 73,232-square-foot building was opened earlier this school year, making it the largest building in the college's history.
The Holloway Health & Wellness Center -- which is named in honor of LWC Board of Trustees Chair Bob Holloway and his late wife, Doris, both of Middletown, Ky. -- includes an indoor, eight-lane swimming pool; recreation pool; 40-person hot tub; indoor walking track; racquetball court; cardiovascular area; weight-lighting room; and three basketball courts.
The annual Founders' Day Dinner will be held at 6 p.m. CT on Wednesday, April 21, in the college's Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center. The dinner -- which honors the founders of the 107-year-old college -- will feature a keynote address from Campolo.
Known as "The Positive Prophet of Red Letter Christianity," Campolo is professor emeritus of sociology at Eastern University. For 10 years he was a member of the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania. He is the founder and president of the Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education.
The college's annual Honors Convocation will be held at 4 p.m. CT on Thursday, April 22, in Biggers Sports Center. At Honors Convocation, the President's Award will be given to a member of the graduating class the president feels best embodies the Lindsey Wilson mission. The Lindsey Wilson Student Government Association will also present the Teacher of the Year award to an outstanding member of the college's faculty.
