LWC 'Has Never Been Stronger,' Luckey Tells Chamber

Posted on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 [6:34 PM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College "has never been stronger" in its nearly 110-year history. That was the message LWC President William T. Luckey Jr. delivered on April 15 at the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce's annual spring banquet.

"Lindsey Wilson College has never been stronger. ... It's pretty clear to me that there is no college in Kentucky that has experience the kind of transformation we have experienced" at Lindsey Wilson, Luckey said in the keynote address to more than 125 guests at the college's Robert D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center.

Luckey, who has been the college's eighth president since July 1, 1998, has presided over the largest expansion in LWC's 108-year history. More than two dozen buildings have been added to the A.P. White Campus, the budget has almost tripled, and enrollment has broken the 2,500-student mark.

But Luckey said LWC's biggest change has been increasing the number of full-time faculty from 42 when he assumed the presidency to more than 100 this school year.

"I think the most dramatic and the most important change at the college is occurring with our students and the interaction they experience with our faculty," Luckey said.
