COLUMBIA, Ky. -- With more than 300 Adair
County residents enrolled annually at Lindsey Wilson College, First & Farmers' Ann Martin knows the
college is an important part of the Columbia-Adair County
That's why she recently presented LWC President William T.
Luckey Jr. with a $10,000 donation to the Lindsey Wilson Fund. The
Lindsey Wilson Fund provides scholarships to the college's
students. First & Farmers' gift will be used to help Adair
County residents earn an LWC degree. Last school year, 387 Adair
County residents enrolled at LWC.
"Lindsey Wilson has a large economic impact on the local
economy, so we want to do everything we can to support the college
and area residents who attend Lindsey Wilson," said Martin, who is
president of the bank's Columbia market. "As Lindsey Wilson grows,
so do Columbia-Adair County."
Martin knows firsthand the value of an LWC degree. She's a
1975 graduate of the college, and her son, Ross, graduated in 2005.
He then graduated from the University of Louisville School of
Dentistry before entering the University of Oklahoma College of
Dentistry's department of oral and maxillofacial
"One reason Lindsey Wilson has been among Kentucky's
fastest-growing colleges is because it enjoys a strong relationship
with organizations such as First & Farmers," LWC President
William T. Luckey said. "I know of no other college that enjoys the
outstanding level of local support that Lindsey Wilson receives
from the businesses and citizens of Columbia-Adair
